As children, we’re taught to paint cold things blue and hot things red. In science we learn that blue things are actually far hotter than red things! In this Hangout, we will learn how hot objects radiate energy as light of many colors following what is called a black body curve.

Join the Hangout on Air 20 Wednesday, May at 18:00 (CET): https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/crdmghpjbhl5t489llnme971g1s?hl=en

This Hangout is part of the series on Astronomy and Planetary Science supported by Ellinogermaniki Agogi and NUCLIO in the framework of the European Science Education Academy and the Galileo Teacher Training Programme. Hangouts are hosted by Dr Pamela L. Gay. GTTP invite you to work along with the series to create classroom educational materials while earning badges as you progress.
