Holiday Party - The Season Of Light

Lights, camera, science! The holiday season has been deemed as the “season of light” for centuries. Illuminating tree ornaments, fireworks, floating candles; lights tend to brighten the whole atmosphere around this time of year. The variety of colors that we observe are as a result of the angle in which light hits them. The primary colors red, green, and blue are used to make a series of other colors that are detected through light.

During this experiment, children will learn the scientific facts beyond various forms of light. The audience will get a chance to experience a stimulating affect that is sure to brighten up their entire day (pun intended).
