Beneath the Surface: Albus Cavus - The Science and Art of Color

Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 3:30 p.m.

Discover the wonderful and unexplored world of color around us. Why is a sunset red and a rainbow always the same?

To answer these questions, we will look at color from the perspective of an artist, physicist, neuroscientist, biologist, philosopher, and even a linguist. Create your own rainbows with diffraction grating and mess around with LEDs, paint and more! 

Ages 13-19.
