Light & Color Experiments

Light & Color

Learn about the properties and physics of light with our eye-catching demonstrations and experiments. When the Mysterious Glowing Ball is spun in a circle by the cord, one can see the white light separate into blinking red, blue, and green lights. Chemical light sticks don't create heat or sparks when lit and are completely waterproof. We have 6 inch and 4 inch light sticks, and mini light sticks.

We have many fun and instructional examples of the power of ultraviolet light. From Spy Pens to our always popular Ultraviolet Detecting Beads and Fluorescent Minerals, these fantastic products can also be integrated into activities with our selection of UV lights.
