Does light mix the same way that paint does?
Actually, no. Some results are similar, but the more colours of light that you mix together the less colour you are able to see, whereas paint gets darker as you add colours.
Little scientists can discover and compare the results of mixing different colour spectrums using this mini-kit. It comes complete with a torch, six Montessori-inspired coloured perspex paddles and a guide that explains the science behind how we see and mix light.
Watch your science loving kids entertain themselves for hours as they explore the endless possibilities that their new tools have to offer.
The guide is a great reference for parents, teachers and homeschoolers. It preempts the tricky questions that your kids may ask while exploring so that you won't have to trawl the internet for child appropriate answers!
So, grab your Coloured Paddle Light Mixing kit and let the kids start exploring today!
