UV light levels around the world
Is ultraviolet radiation on the same level across the globe? Are people aware of how to protect themselves from this radiation?
Students will use UV light sensitive color changing beads to compare the level of UV rays coming from the sun at 3 different hours of the day (9am, 1pm and 5pm) and throughout the globe.
Students will also ask their family members a few questions about UV radiation and different ways of protection from it.
This project is included in an activity called "UV radiation: friend or foe?" created in the framework of the IDiverSE project. To learn about this project visit: http://idiverse.eu/
