Turn off the lights and it glows with a blue and orange cosmic glow.

Description

Also known as aurora borealis, the northern lights are a display in the sky caused by solar wind slamming into our atmosphere. It creates charged particles that release energy in the form of colored light. Named after this natural wonder, Northern Lights Thinking Putty® is a sparkling white that leads to shimmering waves of iridescent purple, pink, and turquoise. Turn off the lights and it glows with a blue and orange cosmic glow.

Thinking Putty® helps build hand and finger strength through a fabulous tactile play experience with unique, unexpected properties and provides relaxing, yet stimulating interaction for anyone with sensory integration issues. Crazy Aaron's putty is non-toxic, won't dry out, and won't leave a sticky or slippery residue on your fingers, so it's great for stretching, molding, bouncing, tearing, popping, and playing by kids and adults alike.

Includes tin with 1/5 lb. (3.2 oz.) of putty and glow charger. Ages 3+.

NGSS

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 conduct investigations showing evidence of illumination from an external source such as the Sun.

1-PS4-4
Electromagnetic Radiation

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

MS-PS4-1

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

MS-PS4-2

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

HS-PS4-5

Students can use UV Putty to conduct investigations on how technological devices use the principles of wave behavior and wave interactions with matter to transmit and capture energy.

HS-PS4-3

Students can use the UV Putty to evaluate the claims, evidence, and reasoning behind the idea that electromagnetic radiation can be described by a wave model.

HS-PS4-4

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.

Suggested Science Idea(s)

PS4.B

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

MS-PS4-2

Students can use the putty to test different materials to see if the UV waves are being reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials. Colored Putty indicates that waves are transmitted.

HS-PS4-5

Students can use the UV Putty in experiments to support mathematical representations of UV light versus white light.
