Place the straw in the glass of water and look at where the straw meets the water. All scientist record their observations, so tell us what you see below:
What do you think is happening to the light to make us see the straw this way?
Create a light maze by arranging prisms to bend the light from the laser pointer.
Once again lets record our observations about what the prism is doing to the light in the light maze you’ve made?
Part 2: Observing Light Scattering
Add milk to one glass of water. Point the laser so that the light goes through the plain glass of water. Now compare it to the glass with the milk/water solution.
Can you see the laser light path?
Why do you think adding milk helps us see the laser light path?
