Playing With Light is the newest exhibit at the Museum of Science and History. LIGHT is fundamental to our every day lives. With so many applications from the apparent simplicity of vision, the beauty of rainbows or paintings, to the high-tech world of fiber optic communication, holographic security and laser surgery, light provides the basis for much of our technology and our view of the world.
PLAY is a means to ignite the imagination for people of all ages. Open ended and without instruction, it offers the opportunity for exploration and creativity, but most importantly, it enables learning through experimentation, a key tenant of the scientific process.
In drawing together PLAY and LIGHT, Scitech has created an exhibition experience like no other. Using basic physics principles, innovative interactive experiences and a sense of fun, Playing With Light offers the opportunity to explore our world and how it is illuminated through 21 exhibits with a multitude of outcomes.
