To the Rescue

Description of the task:
Students are asked to use a variety of materials which will reflect light in order to complete a challenge. This challenge asks them to reflect light from a source around a barrier to make a signal on a screen. They are then asked to produce a spectrum of light on a screen and identify the colours of light in the spectrum. This task will work best in a darkened classroom
