Infrared light is a form of electromagnetic radiation that has longer wavelengths than the spectrum visible to the human eye, but just because we can't see it doesn’t mean it's not there. Join junior scientist Nicholas as he explains how to test for this very elusive light and its radiant energy. To conduct this experiment at home or school, you'll need a glass prism, two thermometers, a black marker, scissors, a box with a white paper base and a notepad for recording your results.
