How cool is it to have a UV-Lamp in the classroom laboratory?

2015-09-08 12.55.51It is pretty easy to find a UV-lamp, (if you are in Sweden Class Ohlson has some for pretty reasonable prices) and it opens the daily activity to a whole new spectrum.

You can draw with fluorescent markers an d see the shining colors, you can play with florescent paint, you can play with white objects and discuss why some of them shine and some of them change color. 2015-09-16 13.54.13You can even see the small fibers in your clothes or check out your shining teeth!

All ages can investigate and research the effects of a UV-lamp!
