Rise High wrapped up the module on the Science of Light & Color with a mind-blowing session focused on Colors. We learned about the differences between additive and subtractive color mixing, and explored the differences between mixing different colors of light and different colors of paint/dyes. Not what we expected! Is color what you think it is? Is what you see what others see? We also learned about how we see colors and how sometimes
We continued the theme on the Science of Light & Colors with an intro to color in an artistic way. We not only know that science is in art, but that artistic engagement positively impacts our ability to problem-solve and be more creative (something we scientists need to be good at). And to top that, it activates our neurological system in ways that makes us happier and less prone to certain diseases. So, today we

What a fun way of applying what we learned about the behavior and properties of waves. Thank

This special group of students will be moving up to 7th grade in the fall, and they will join us again as 7th graders! We are already missing them (but we will see them soon!). We celebrated with the students and their families, Rise High staff, mentors, partners,
