Join us the first Wednesday of every month for science, technology, engineering and math!
Everything we see, we see because of light! When light bounces, it is called reflection. Light travels in a straight line, unless an object gets in its way. Light reflects off different objects in different ways depending upon the surface it hits. If an object is smooth and shiny, a beam of light will bounce off of it in a predictable direction. You can use this phenomenon to play with light and aim it at a target of your choice!
