Product Description

Video and lesson investigations on the topic of color. Key concepts include:

  • In white light all colors from the visible spectrum can be seen.
  • Only some colors can be seen through colored plastic.
  • Some colored plastics only let one color (their own color) through.
  • Other colored plastics let several colors through.
  • Color ‘filters’ only let their component colors pass through.
  • They absorb all of the other colors from white light.
  • This is why they are called color ‘filters’. For example, red filters only let red light pass through them, blue only blue light,
  • and green only green light.
  • Orange filters let some yellow and some red through because the color orange is made up of partly yellow and partly red.
  • The light we see is only part of the entire electromagnetic spectrum.
  • Parts of this spectrum that are invisible to the naked eye include X-rays, ultraviolet rays and infra-red radiation.
