Welcome to
Alfred, NY - Alfred University
Basic Optics

Ever wonder why you see your face reflected in the glass when you look out at the sky at night but when you look out during the day all you see is what’s outside? Ever wonder why you cannot see too well through fog? Ever wonder why objects can be different colors even though we are looking at them in the same light? This this is the camp for you; we will talk about what light is, how it interacts with materials and how that makes it look a certain way! And, we might even branch out very briefly into the light on the edge of our vision (UV and Infrared).
• Light (EM radiation); what is it? And how much of it (what colors) can we see?
• What happens to light when it finds materials? (e.g., reflection, refraction, transmission, scattering)
• What material qualities control what happens to the light and why?
• We will do some measurements and tests with light to see what happens when it interacts with materials to see what it looks like and why.
- And, don’t worry – you don’t have to be a physicist to do this; we will explain stuff without equations!!! You just have to be someone who wants to know “why?”
When not in classes, campers have lots of fun participating in a variety of recreational activities. Planned activities include indoor and outdoor games, hikes and movies, possible planned trips to the Equestrian Center, Foster Lake, and social gatherings at a local coffee house. There is also a farewell party on the last night of camp. Admissions interviews and campus tours will be available by appointment on Thursday afternoon.
