Students explore the the interactions of waves with different types of matter. Reflection, Absorption, and Transmission all covered in this lab in three different lab stations. Follow Up questions included.
NGSS: When light shines on an object, it is reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through the object, depending on the object’s material and the frequency (color) of the light. (MS-PS4-2)
The path that light travels can be traced as straight lines, except at surfaces between different transparent materials (e.g., air and water, air and glass) where the light path bends. (MS-PS4-2)
