Interactive Stand Stand: S1

Discover the secrets of the light

In this interactive stand participants will explore the technology of light bulbs and see how humans are always trying to imitate nature. Students will experiment with luminescent, hydrochromic, thermochromic and photochromic materials and will discover how they work. In order to learn more about light, participants will use electronic toys to find out how photons work. In addition, they will explore the physical phenomena that make possible to color transparent materials. Older students will use mobile applications and photoreceptors to measure light intensity.
