Experiments with Expo Markers

fluorescent Expo markers

Doug Ragan’s on Expo neon markers got me thinking about how I’ve used these markers in my classroom. By simply using these markers, a small UV/violet LED and a white lightstick, you can teach your students a bit about fluorescence and chemiluminescence.

If you’d like to learn more simple experiments you can do with lightsticks – or just learn more about the chemistry of lightsticks – check out the following article in the Journal of Chemical Education.
