Learn about reflection and refraction and meet Emily Altiere, a PhD student in physics who studies lasers.
Learn about the history of telescopes and the function of refracting and reflecting optical telescopes.
Rainbows are beautiful examples of optics in nature. We see them thanks to the reflection and refraction of visible light and water.
How does the human eye see visible light as colour? And why do some people see more colours than others?
Find out what happens if you spin the colours of the rainbow in this hands-on activity.
Explore how we see things far and near and from different angles. It's all about perspective!
What does light have to do with colour? Observe some colourful fruit under different conditions to learn why we see the colours we see!
Ever wondered why we have two eyes (and not one, three or more)? Find how your two eyes work together in this hands-on activity.
Learn about telescopes, how they work & why they're important to astronomers.
