Hand Outs and Posters

Ultra Violet Bead Bracelets

 

Light is something all of us are familiar with. It gives us the ability to see all types of colors and details. However there are others types of light that our eyes cannot detect. This activity shows you how you can use special Ultra Violet (UV) beads to make bracelets that will detect when you are exposed to UV light. 

NOTE:

We recommend this acitivity for 3rd grade and up and the beads can be a choking hazzard.
