Chemistry – The Nature of Light

Alfred University’s Consumer Chemistry: The Nature of Light is a dynamic camp for students aged 14-17 who want to know more about spectrophotometry. Participants will use the scientific method to design and build their own spectroscopes, experiment with spectrophotometer, perform a colorimetric analysis and use their creativity to apply the wavelengths of light energy to clothing. Classes are taught by distinguished members of the Alfred University Chemistry faculty. The program emphasis is on learning and having fun!
Have you ever wondered . . .
• What causes the different colors in fireworks?
• Where the glow from a glow-stick comes from?
• What makes fluorescent lighting harsh for some people?
• Why there are summer colors and winter colors for clothing?
- Why greenhouses use blue lights for certain growth and red-blue for others?
This camp will help answer those questions and many more! You will discover how light works and much more! Camp topics are tailored to student interests and students are given the opportunity to explore topics of individual curiosity.The camp will also include daily labs as well as brief lectures and lively discussions about the nature of light.
When not in classes, students will enjoy planned recreational activities such as indoor and outdoor games, movies, visits to a nearby lake for picnics and campfires, social gatherings at a local coffee house and a farewell party on the last night.
