Electromagnetic Spectrum

Somewhere, over the...electromagnetic spectrum? That’s right! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby introduce you to the electromagnetic spectrum and radiation. Among other things, you’ll find out where these things come from and how they are organized. Discover the different ways energy can move through space, and meet the seven types of electromagnetic radiation. Plus, you’ll learn what radio waves are used for (hint: it’s not just radios!) as well as the difference between infrared rays, ultraviolet rays, and x-rays. You’ll definitely look at your own x-rays in a new light!
