Let us light up your night!

These quick and easy necklaces are always a huge hit at any event we visit. As a quick "make and take" this project can be completed in 20 minutes as a craft or preceded by a lesson in electricity, optical properties of glass and plastic and the differences between mixing colours of paint (Red, Yellow and Blue) and mixing colours of light (Red, Green and Blue). The expanded, hands-on experimental science lesson is approximately 75 minutes.

This program was developed and is run in partnership with Mindful Makers. It is a favourite at school STEAM faires and community summer picnics -- especially ones that last into the twilight of the evening.

Prices begin at $199/group*
