Description:

Learners observe glow-in-the-dark objects in a homemade light-proof box. Objects can include glow sticks, glow-in-the-dark toys, and toys with fluorescent paint. The box is built with a black light installed, which can be controlled with a switch outside the box. Background information is provided about the difference between fluorescence (glows only when light is shined on it) and phosphorescence (continues to glow after light is removed), and an electron-level explanation is also provided.
