        Black & White Make Color | STEM Alive

        Students can easily turn a Compact Disc into an excellent spinning platform. By adding the pattern for a Benham’s disc to this set-up, you and your students can explore the interesting effect that happens – the spinning black and white pattern creates an illusion of seeing colors in the spinning disc and reveals an interesting aspect of how our eyes and brain perceive color.

        Activity Worksheet available in Support Materials section
