Discover Infrared for Yourself - The Herschel Experiment
A low cost, easy to do experiment which allows students to discover infrared
light for themselves. Includes images of experiment and school results.
Classroom Activities for Learning about Infrared Light
Students are introduced to light and filters, build
a photocell detector and use it to detect different colors of light,
learn that infrared light is reflected in the same manner as visible light,
and that infrared in some cases behaves like visible light and other cases
behaves very differently.
Newton's Apple - Infrared - T.V. remote experiment
Using your television's remote control as a source of infrared radiation,
you will compare the behavior of a beam of infrared radiation to that of a
beam of visible light. You will see how each reacts when different materials
are placed in its path.
What is it? - Learn about Infrared Imaging
View a variety of infrared images and try to guess what they are. The
answers teach student about the properties of infrared light.
The Infrared Zoo (includes a new "hide and seek" game)
Learn about infrared light and warm and cold-blooded animals by viewing
dozens of animals in the infrared.
Seeing Our World in a Different Light
