Light enables us to see and understand our environment. We’ll have a close look at light’s energy, making light, laser light, how light bounces (reflects), mirrors, how it bends (refracts), how it makes colour (absorbs) and shadows.

What the teachers said about the In The Dark show
Wonderful presentation by Mr Doyle. It was relevant and age appropriate for each group. All the children were fully engaged with the presentation.
It was right in line with what our classes are currently studying. The kids loved seeing circuits created using bananas.
Mick presented the information wonderfully. He engaged the students from right at the start and guided them to think deeply about the content and their answers to his questions. He was funny, lively and presented the content in an exciting way. Thank you for coming.
I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation. The explanations were clear & concise without losing the wow factor. Appreciated your management of the pointy end specials in our group. Thanks for the stimulating performance.
