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

The Science of Color and Light
(Suitable for all grades)

The Science of 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 shadows and color mixing while exploring our color shadow wall, and play an interactive game that is projected on the wall!

Touch the Liquid Crystal Sheets and discover how the liquid crystal changes color with the heat of your hand, tinker with 3D printed objects and learn about how our eyes work. Participants will also get the chance to manipulate light and shadows and even try your hand at color mixing! *NGSS Alignment
