Optics Fun at the Science Fair

The K-5 kids at the “Transformations” Science Fair in Ithaca got a head start on learning optical science last week. Luckily CIAN provided us with several hundred pairs of diffraction grating glasses, just enough to cover the 300 elementary school students who learned about the colors hidden in white light.

“So many cool optical demos to explore, so little time!”
