Light Specialists

In Science, we are trying to put together a portfolio of our knowledge relating to 'light'. We have learnt about the way in which light travels and how shadows are created with an opaque object. 

We wanted to find out whether the distance of the light source, in relation to the opaque object, affected the size and definition of the shadow - and so, we set up a line of enquiry, carefully considering fair testing, variables that would require changing and finally making a prediction as to the results. We carried out our experiment in a darkened classroom and recorded our results in order to draw a conclusion. 





What do you think we discovered?

We extended this investigation to see whether the angle of the light source affected the size and definition of the object too!

Our results were very interesting!
