Instructions / Notes:
Faculty: Room lights must be dimmed for students to see the refracted rays.
Optics Board light sources are set to project rays through lucite prisms.
The light sources include an incadescent ray box and a set of parallel lasers.
The bottom most light source, (hiding in the photo below), is set up with a single slit - it projects through a small prism to show a spectrum.
