Light carries information from the world to our eyes and brains. Seeing colors and shapes is second nature to us, yet light is a perplexing phenomenon when we study it more closely. What exactly are the properties of light? The Light Around Us explores both the physics of light and how we see it. Learn about light absorption, reflection, refraction, and diffraction. Bend and bounce light rays using lenses and mirrors, block or change the color of everyday objects, separate white light into colors, create shadows of overlapping color, and discover light beyond the visible spectrum.
