We loved the hands on nature of both science and art experiences, that there weren’t any other schools there which makes for a less crazy/less worrisome day and that we can stay as one class to rotate through the stations. We loved that everything is organized and that there were knowledgeable teachers at each station. – Fayette County teacher

Color & Light is LASC’s newest Discovery Exhibit where curious minds can explore the science behind the world we see. Guests will have the opportunity to experiment with hands-on activities, examine laser lights while playing a mini-laser puzzle game, and learn about earth’s greatest light source…the sun!
Watch colors change with breaking white light into a colorful rainbow, tinker with 3D printed objects and learn about our new solar panel, provided by Solar Energy Solutions, LLC. Participants will also get the chance to manipulate light and shadows and even try your hand at color mixing! *NGSS Alignment

The Explorers Classroom lets you and your students take a deeper look into subjects we introduce in The Science of Color and Light Discovery Exhibit. One of our Discovery Educators, will lead the group in a Chromatography demonstration, discuss the science behind how our eyes perceive colors, and create a color spinner that is sure to trick your eyes!
