This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

1-PS4-2

Students can use the UV Filter to conduct investigations showing evidence of illumination from an external source such as the Sun has UV light.

DCI/1-PS4.B:
Electromagnetic Radiation

Objects can be seen only when light is available to illuminate them.

MS-PS4-1

Students can use the UV Filter to conduct investigations showing evidence that the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave.

MS-PS4-2

Students can use the UV Filter to develop and use a model to describe how waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.

HS-PS4-5

Students can use the UV Filter in an investigation of UV light and to conduct investigations about technological devices use the principles of wave behavior and wave interactions with matter to transmit and capture energy.

Suggested Science Idea(s)

1-PS4-2

Students can use the UV Filter, which contains one clear disc that absorbs UV-A light, whereas the other disc allows UV light to be transmitted. This investigation works great with the UV Beads. The students can develop an awareness of where, when and how strong UV light is.

DCI-1/PS4.B:
Electromagnetic Radiation.

Students get a better understanding of the Electromagnetic Radiation when they manipulate the UV Filter. With the filter and UV radiation is absorbed, the beads are white. When exposed to UV radiation, the beads turn colors.

MS-PS4-1

Students can conduct investigations outside with the UV Filter and make correlations to the Electromagnetic Spectrum and the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave.

DCI/HS-PS2.B

Students can conduct investigations outside with the UV Filter and the UV Beads in experiments to support mathematical representations of UV light and other light sources.
