Le programme

Week One: Perception
To understand light, we must understand how our eyes and brain perceive and make sense of it. We’ll look at illusions that illuminate how the eye and the brain use light to construct models of the natural world.



Week Two: Optics
Make images using lenses and mirrors, and do a deep dive into the fascinating world of optics. 



Week Three: What is light? A historical tour
Explore the nature of light by doing simple modern versions of classical experiments following light from particle to wave to quantum object.



Week Four: The wave nature of light

Explore the modern view of light: see light as a wave and as a photon.

If you wish to earn a Statement of Accomplishment, you'll need to take what you’ve learned in this class and submit a mini-lesson for peer review and evaluation. You can adapt one of our activities or come up with your own, but you must try things out! In return, you'll get valuable feedback and tips from the instructors and other students in the class.

Le concepteur

The Exploratorium is a twenty-first-century learning laboratory, an eye-opening, always-changing, playful place to explore and tinker. For more than forty years, we’ve built creative, thought-provoking exhibits, tools, programs, and experiences that ignite curiosity, encourage exploration, and lead to profound learning. We use the same tools and approaches to design compelling professional development programs for teachers ranging from novice to expert, elementary to high school, and formal and informal, in fields of science, math, and engineering. To date the Exploratorium has provided in-depth, multi-year programming to thousands of educators from over 450 school districts in 47 states and in many different countries.
