Use the science of light and shadows to create something artful
Light Lab – Light up your imagination. Light Lab welcomes guests to investigate the impact of color, light, and shadows in a darkened gallery. Visitors can draw with light, freeze shadows, play and manipulate colors with circuits and build light structures using blocks, LEDs, and projected light.
Note: Does your little engineer want to design more amazing Light Stax structures at home? If so, Light Stax are sold separately in the Thinkery Store.
Things to know and what to try:
- Permission to explore makes discovery possible. Encourage your child’s curiosity about how things work!
- Get into the action – use the materials to support and enhance their play.
- Try asking open-ended questions that encourage observation, reflection, and new questions like, “what patterns did you notice?”
