Academies for Young Minds - Colorado School of Mines

I am partnering with the Academies for Young Minds program of the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado to offer summer science workshops for curious students that will be entering grades 3, 4, and 5 in the fall of 2017. There is still time to register for the following workshops:

What's That You See? The Physics of Light and the Biology of Sight  

Explore the concepts of light, color, and energy through hands-on, eyes-on investigations and experiments. Refraction, reflection, and diffraction are just a few of the concepts that will be explored. Connect the physics of light to the biology of sight through visual perception investigations and a cow eyeball dissection. Play with color mixing and explore common vision problems. Think and act like a scientist as you design and carry out your own light and/or sight experiments to answer the questions that make you the most curious.


Session 2 • July 10-13, 2017 (Monday-Thursday) • 9:00am - 12:00pm
