Particle or Wave or Both?
Learn about different properties of light through hands-on experiments. Kids will learn about waves and see different wave patterns in a water wave tank. They will learn about visible and invisible light spectra wavelengths, amplitude, and energy relationship. We will discuss atoms, electrons, and photons.
We will perform the double slit experiment to show the wave properties of light similar to waves in the wave tank. We will also conduct an experiment to show the particle nature of light through a demonstration of the photoelectric effect that won Albert Einstein his Nobel prize.
