Light and laser

Let us enlighten you!

What is light? What hides behind the white light? How does a laser work? Visible and non-visible light, its components, speed, force and different frequencies of light are key concepts that youths will learn about through hands-on experience with a spectroscope, white and ultraviolet light, fiber optics, prisms, mirrors and lasers. They will be dazzled!

For 30 more minutes

Come discover the mystery behind hidden light and secret light. What is hidden in a passport or an IWB remote control? Come explore with us! In a dark room with no smoke alarm, become the actors on Mission Impossible!

Objectives at the elementary level:

  • Understand the different components in light (photons).
  • Be familiar with the primary colours of light.
  • Identify different sources of light.
  • Observe the behaviour of a light ray (laser).
  • Recognize the presence of “hidden” light (infrared and ultraviolet).

 Objectives at the secondary level:

  • Define light as a form of radiant energy.
  • Define wavelength as the distance between any two corresponding points on a wave at any given moment (e.g. the distance between two crests).
  • Identify various luminous regions on the electromagnetic spectrum (e.g. radio, infrared, visible light and X-rays).
  • Describe the relationship between wavelength and the energy associated with it (e.g. X-rays are a very energetic form with short wavelengths).
  • Describe how light rays are deviated by a plane reflecting surface and mirror.
  • Describe how light rays are deviated when they strike the convex or concave surface of a transparent material.

Nos besoins

  • This workshop needs a dark space.
  • Access to an electrical outlet is required.
  • If there is little time between animation activities, it is strongly recommended to set them up in the same area.
  • 6 teams must be created before the science animator arrives.

Additional charges

  • Travel costs (minimum $ 25) based on distance apply.
  • In 60-minute workshops, if there are more than 5 groups on schedule, the workshops will be spread over more than one day and the transportation costs will have to be adjusted accordingly.
  • In 90-minute workshops, if there are more than 4 groups on the schedule, the workshops will be spread over more than one day and the transportation costs will have to be adjusted accordingly.
  • Additional fees will be charged if there is a delay of more than 90 minutes between two workshops.
