Science Sunday: The Magic of Filtered Light 
July 8, 11:30 and 1:30

Let us introduce you to Roy G. Biv and learn how to change ordinary “white” light into a whole rainbow of colors with nothing but a mirror and a pan of water.  Use filters to see colored marks you made on paper mysteriously appear and disappear.  Watch while a plastic circle painted to look like a pie with different colored slices starts to spin and turns white! 
Best for ages 7+, included with Museum admission
