Our eyes can only see using visible light, but there’s an entire spectrum  of other stuff to see if we use the  right equipment.

Join us on a tour of the electromagnetic spectrum as we experiment with different types of light. This show helps students get to grips with electromagnetic waves as we look at gamma and x-rays, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, microwaves and radio waves.

Your students will learn how to stop anyone from changing their TV channels using light and how scientists use different wavelengths to explore the universe.

Show requirements: 2 tables and access to plug sockets.
