in the news… pupils switch on to the marvel of light and colour
The Colour Group UK is an interdisciplinary society of scientists and colour professionals concerned with the measurement, reproduction and perception of colour. The group’s primary objective is to encourage the study of colour and to promote the education of the public on colour.
So it’s great to see fellow member, Scientist Ben Craven, Times interview on his interactive talks on the science of colour to school groups from ages nine to 18. His talks are linked to the curriculum but are also designed to encourage an interest and curiosity in the subject, rather than being totally fact-based.
Continuing colour awareness can only have a positive effect in raising the profile and understanding of all aspects and influences of colour. The Colour Group UK and other colour organisations are working towards this goal.
