We'll supply the lasers and the filters and leave it to you to figure out how various filters interact with various colors of laser light. The filters will either block (absorb) the laser light or allow it to be transmitted (passed through). Once you have figured out the "rules" of how various color filters interact with specific colors of light, take your understanding a step further by figuring out how color-tinted sunglasses work. Launch Interactive and start exploring.
