S7799: Chemistry of color: light, molecules, and you in Splash Fall 2022 (Dec. 03 - 04, 2022)
Color is key to how we perceive the world, but what makes the sky blue and plants green? In this class we'll talk about how molecules interact with light, and how we see that light as color. After a brief lecture, students will interact with several hands-on demos and experiments.

W6849: Quantum Mechanics of Light and Matter: A Hands-On Approach in Splash Fall 2018 (Dec. 01 - 02, 2018)
How does a glow stick work? How about a fluorescent light bulb, an LED, or a glow-in-the-dark star? And what does this have to do with quantum mechanics? Light is all around us. It's how we see and how we communicate as well. In this walk-in activity, we explore hands-on demonstrations of everyday phenomena involving light (fluorescence, phosphorescence, chemiluminescence) that provide a glimpse into the quantum world. Plus, take home a glow stick!
