S7992: Waves and How to Find Them in Splash Spring 2024 (May. 18 - 19, 2024)
You might’ve carved surfing waves, heard of sound waves, and probably seen light waves, but what about waves we can't detect? Acoustic and electromagnetic waves play incredible roles in nature and technology, ranging from echolocation to global warming, but most of them are imperceptible to us. Come join us to uncover a world entirely invisible to us!

S7897: Laser Magic in Splash Fall 2023 (Dec. 02 - 03, 2023)
Lasers are one of the most important inventions of the 20th century. Their impact is felt everywhere in our daily lives, from cash registers to eye surgery to manufacturing. In this class, we'll be going over what makes a laser, the science underlying a laser and the many applications of lasers! We will also show the actual components inside of a laser. Get ready for some laser magic :).

S7833: How cool is light in Splash Spring 2023 (May. 20 - 21, 2023)
How does global warming actually work? Do rattlesnakes have a seventh sense? Thermal radiation has origins in quantum mechanics, underpins the greenhouse effect, and allows motion sensors, satellites, and even some snakes to “see” temperature. Come join us to find out how cool thermal radiation really is!

S7777: Interacting with Colors in Splash Fall 2022 (Dec. 03 - 04, 2022)
What is color? What happens when you add the colors of the rainbow? Come play with lights and paint to understand the science of colors and how we perceive them!

C7660: Vision in Splash Virtual Fall 2021 (Nov. 13 - 14, 2021)
Why did pirates wear eye patches? Is pink a real color? This seminar covers the physics of eyes and relates to modern topics such as phone displays, cameras, and color-blindness. Come and join to see what vision is all about!
