Refraction Science Experiment

Spruce class have been learning about light and refraction in science. We learnt that refraction is when light rays travel at different speeds through transparent materials such as glass and water; this causes the rays of light to bend.

We experimented using a picture and a glass. We drew a picture and placed it under the glass while slowly filling the glass with water. The picture seemed to disappear when we looked through the side of the glass.
