Lab-Aids: Color and Spectrum Module (no Light Stations)


During the seven activities in this module, students use diffraction gratings and make a spectroscope to separate, describe, and understand the spectrum of light from a variety of sources. They also learn that light can be separated into many wavelengths and study how light interacts with color filters, how colored light can change the color of objects and how combinations of different colored light beams produce other colors, including white. Using luminescent material, students also study absorption, emission and conservation of energy. The activities in this module (and in the related LAB-P110 and LAB-P130 modules) were developed at the University of Kentucky and include materials designed for seamless use with LAB-AIDS‚® Light Stations. If you've purchased the LAB-P110 Investigating Light Module, you can purchase the extension package P120A to avoid getting duplicate materials. LIGHT STATIONS NOT INCLUDED.
