The 9-session NASA Family Science Night program invites middle school children and their families to discover the wide variety of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics being performed at NASA and in everyday life. Family Science Night... (View More)

Audience: Informal education

This is an activity about ultraviolet light. Learners will make ultraviolet light detector bracelets and use them to experiment with artificial light and sunlight. Then, they experiment with various sun-blocking materials to see how such materials... (View More)

Audience: Informal education
Materials Cost: $5 - $10

This is an activity about constructing and conducting experiments to determine what part(s) of the spectrum cause a reaction to ultraviolet light-sensitive beads. Learners will design an experiment, present this design for peer review, make... (View More)

This is an activity about whether different wavelengths (colors) in the light spectrum heat objects differently. The activity also focuses on the process used to explore scientific questions pertaining to this topic, thereby developing tools and... (View More)

In this lesson, learners will create a series of predictions about the nature and behavior of light and color, collect data on the same questions and make conclusions using evidence from the exploration. This is lesson 1 in a collection entitled, In... (View More)

Audience: Middle school, High school
Materials Cost: Free

This is an activity about the spectra of different colors of light. The activity also focuses on the process used to explore scientific questions pertaining to this topic, thereby developing tools and strategies for student inquiry. Learners will... (View More)

This is an activity about constructing and conducting an experiment. Learners will choose a question of their individual design about light and the light spectrum, design an experiment to answer the question, present this design for peer review,... (View More)

This is an activity about the properties of light as seen in prisms and rainbows. The activity also focuses on the process used to explore scientific questions pertaining to these topics, thereby developing tools and strategies for student inquiry.... (View More)

This is an activity about polarized light. Learners will use a polarizing filter to build and calibrate a simple polarimeter, use the constructed polarimeter to find sources of polarized light, and measure the angle of polarization of polarized... (View More)

This is an activity involving scientific inquiry. Using a constructed Mystery Light Box, learners will observe what is in the box without removing the object from the box, shining a light into the box, or reaching hands into the box, and they will... (View More)
