Ruben uses lasers, thermal imagining cameras and balloons to demonstrate the amazing science of light.
Students see a laser beam that can pop a balloon inside another balloon and learn about the hazards of laser light. They will learn the difference between ultraviolet and infrared light and how to make a rainbow.
Follow up activities include
1) Learning how computer and smartphone screens use red, green and blue light emitting diodes (LEDs) to recreate the entire rainbow
2) Filming your own vestibulo-occular reflex using a smartphone or tablet camera
