STEM workshop – applications of light and colour

Younger students are enthralled by phenomena of light and colour around them such as rainbows, stars and shadows. They are curious about what makes light and the materials that can affect how light moves. The Light and Colour workshop will help students develop STEM skills such as collaboration, creative and critical thinking as they experiment with the science of light and learn about its application in industries such as space and astronomy through design.

The STEM workshop’ Light and Colour’ at Scienceworks for students in Years 1-4 is a pilot program to run across 4 terms from Term 3 2021 to Term 2 2022 that ties in with Scienceworks’ 30th anniversary theme of Light and Optics.

Students and teachers from Melbourne’s west will have the opportunity attend and trail the program for free in Term 3/4 2021.
