Science Club - Light and Waves

Lee Copson —

Science Club is about to travel at the speed of light - approximately 300,000 km per second - the fastest you can go!

Well, that’s according to the Postulates of Special Relativity which states that the laws of physics are the same in all inertial frames of reference. The speed of light in a vacuum has the same value (c) in all inertial frames of reference.

Over the next few weeks, we will be exploring the propagation and processes of light and waves. So get your telescopes, prisms and ray boxes ready!
