23 Nov Science in Argentina
Argentina had lots of fun in our science last week as we investigated light and darkness using dark boxes. We created our darkboxes from shoeboxes by painting their insides black and blocking any holes where light could get in. We then controlled the amount of light coming in by using opaque and translucent materials across a hole in the lid so we could investigate what kind of objects we could see. Our conclusions were that shiny objects were easier to see as their surface reflected the light back into our eyes better than dark, matt surfaces. Very enlightening!
