(Color Our World Bright and Beautiful!)

The world of science is full of many beautiful colors! Some of the colors in our world cannot be seen with just your eyes, so scientists developed special equipment and tools to help them. By seeing the colors created by different materials, they can tell more about them. Did you know that?


The Visible Spectrum

When all the colors of the light spectrum are mixed together, you see a white light. When all the colors are separated, a rainbow appears. Take a look at one of the ways scientists use colors to help them in their work!

And you should be aware that "colors" in our environment definitely affect us! The human eye can see 7,000,000 colors. Some colors and color relationships can be eye irritants, cause headaches, and wreak havoc with human vision. Other colors and color combinations are soothing and make us feel better. Consequently, the appropriate use of color can maximize productivity, minimize visual fatigue, and relax the whole body.

Note for our visitors using "assistive technology" or java-disabled browsers: Technology does not yet provide a means for converting the automated coloring pages to a form that does not rely on java scripts or a form that can be used with "assistive technology". Please be assured that we will continue looking for ways to make such adaptions.
