Which Colour Makes the Best Sunglasses for Teddy?

Produced by Becta, this short case study shows how one school used dataloggers to investigate the properties of light and colour filters with a Year Two class. Teachers posed the question: Which is the best colour for teddybear sunglasses. Students used datalogging equipment to measure the effect on light when using different colour filters. The case study describes what the children did and how the use of ICT enhanced their work.
