This experiment was designed to show us how our eyes adapt to the dark.

As part of our science inquiry into light pollution, Room 3 have been learning about how our eyes work. To be great astronomical observers we need to understand how we see in the dark. This week’s experiment taught us how our eyes adapt to the dark. We tried to sort bottle caps in very dark conditions and found that by allowing our eyes to adapt to the dark we did a much better job. We then designed a fair test to see if it was easier to sort different colours on a white background or a black one. Many of us thought the white paper would be better, but we were wrong! One of the best things about our learning in science is that we raise more questions than we answer. We are loving our learning!
