Explores ultraviolet light -- what it is, where it comes from, how we can detect it, and what effects it has upon us and our Earth. Using (inexpensive to order) UV sensitive beads, the students test the beads with various levels of sunscreen protection, as well as the quality of UV protecting sunglasses. Surprises await when using the beads on cloudy days.
