Watch how the three primary colors of light add in different combinations variety of colors including white. Next colored filters are used to show how objects appear under different colors of light. While you could memorize all of the different combinations, how much easier to learn the logic of how the colors combine. These two different lab explorations can be used alone or in tandem, depending on your equipment and needs.
