Here we learn about infrared and how it can be used to determine temperatures in a very fun and interactive way for the kids. Infrared Astronomy uses this technology to view heat energy from objects in the universe and allow us to detect things not visible to the human eye. Another interesting interactive exhibit we saw was on Spectroscopy which breaks light down to is various rainbow-like wavelengths. We learned how this is used to detect chemical elements and we used it to identify various mercury, halogen and other types of light by the prism of light formed.
