Description:

In this activity (on page 2 of the PDF), learners will see the illusion of colors produced by a rotating black and white image known as Benham’s Disk. They will experiment with rotation direction and speed to see if they can discern a relationship between the patterns and what colors they reproduce. Relates to the linked video, DragonflyTV GPS: Light and Color.
