Episode 3: Atom Light.
How do atoms colour the world?
This episode looks at how atoms absorb and release different colours of light to make atomic spectra* and colour our world. This is an advanced topic, but through the detailed explanations and
links to music and dance, the content can be adapted for different levels. We will look at
how light frequencies absorbed and emitted by atoms operate in a similar way to music
frequencies and use this analogy to explore how atomic spectra are created by atoms,
using high, medium, and low energy movements.
Helping students of all ages discover the world of atoms through dance.
Join atomic physicists from Imperial College London and dance artists from The Place to learn about atoms and molecules in a creative and physical way.
After the two-minute introductory ‘Episode 0′, there are six 20 to 30-minute-long films. In each, a scientific theory is explained by a physicist and explored creatively with a dance artist. Additional project ideas are suggested at the end of each episode.
Follow along at home or at school. If you’re a teacher, you may like to use the films to create your own lesson plans.
