We're delighted that the Stanford SOLAR (Solar On-Line Activity Resource) Center, in conjunction with NASA and the Learning Technologies Channel, have incorporated our UV Detecting Beads in their UV light lesson plans. If you're interested in lessons that really GLOW with hands-on activities, you'll want to take a look at these free resources:
42-page Lesson Plan for grades 2-4.
34-page Lesson Plan for grades 5-8.
22-page Lesson Plan for grades 9-12.

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.
Suggested Science Idea(s)
Students can conduct investigations showing evidence of illumination from an external source such as the Sun.
Objects can be seen only when light is available to illuminate them.
Students can conduct investigations showing evidence that the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in the wave.
Students can use this tool to develop and use a model to describe how waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.
Students can conduct investigations with these beads to support claims regarding the relationships among the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves traveling in various media.
Students can use the UV Beads in the kit to evaluate the claims, evidence, and reasoning behind the idea that electromagnetic radiation can be described by a wave model.
Students can explore the idea that different frequencies of light have different energies, and the damage to living tissue from electromagnetic radiation depends on the energy of the radiation.
Students can use UV Beads to conduct investigations on how technological devices use the principles of wave behavior and wave interactions with matter to transmit and capture energy.
UV Bead necklaces or bracelets can be worn to help students develop awareness of where and when UV light is present.
Students can conduct investigations outside with the UV Beads in this kit and make correlations to the Electromagnetic Spectrum and the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave.
Students can use this kit in experiments to support mathematical representations of UV light versus white light.
