Maheno School gets all lit-up with LIAB.

On May 4th Lab in a Box visited Maheno School and delivered sessions on the Science of Light to Y1-Y8 students. Otago Museum Science Communicators prepared some demonstrations talking about visible light, reflection and refraction, lenses and concave and convex shapes, colored shadows, and Ultra Violet Light, and finally creating light with a chemical reaction using Hydrogen. A big thank you goes to the University of Otago Physics Department for lending their light boxes sets, and promoting science engagement in rural communities! Check out the attached pictures of the kids in action.
