The PhoSoc's "Color Mixing" activity was extended to an hour-long activity for the Teen Center at the local Girls Inc.
We borrowed the red-blocking laser safety glasses from the Light-Pipes activity, and used it to simulate "color blindness" - ie. what happens when you are missing a red cone?
(Answer - no red objects don't become invisible, but colors that were previously obviously different become nearly indistinguishable!)

These activities were developed by the PhoSoc at UCSB's Outreach Team, or individuals who are part of the team.
