There's More to Light than Meets the Eye

Students explore the concept that not all light is visible to the human eye. Although UV light is not visible, it can still be harmful, causing sunburns or skin cancer. They use special beads to detect UV light around the school. Students then conduct an experiment to determine what types of materials are best for blocking UV light on Earth, as well as in space.
