Students use glow sticks in order to learn about luminescence. There are three total labs in the packet.
Observe a Glow Stick
How does a Glow Stick Work?
How does Temperature Affect the Intensity of a Glow Stick?
Students will need a glow bracelet (sold in packs of 5 for $1 at most dollar stores) for the first lab, a regular glow stick for the second lab, and three glow sticks of the same color per group for the third lab.
There are definition posters for the different types of luminescence with examples for each. These include: fluorescence, electroluminescence, chemiluminescence, triboluminescence, bioluminescence, and phosphorescence.
