How do we explain the fact that large chunks of what we see with white light go missing when we look through a colour filter? Why is it that the moon appears to have a different shape every night of each calendar month?

Join years 5&6 in their exhibition opening at #TAG to discover the surprising effects of light, its properties of colour and its power to illuminate how, what and when we see the world around us…

Marvel at the cosmic reflections caused by a pyramid of mirrors. Learn how translucent shapes glow when they align with the spot light. Find the answer as to why white paper appears to emit soft, pastel shades when no visible colour on its surface exits.
