Science Week 2016 Step 1: Energy and Forces – Magnetism and Electricity
Making rainbow spinners!
Objectives: Investigate the Splitting and Mixing of Light
Skills: Experimenting, Observing
Through investigation the child were enabled to investigate the splitting and mixing of light. The children learned that not only can white light be broken up into the rainbow colours, but also that the rainbow colours can be brought together to produce white light. They also learn about persistence of vision (i.e. that if things move fast enough the eye cannot distinguish between them and they merge).
