A good way of introducing the topic of light or the electromagnetic spectrum in under 5 minutes.

This video from the YouTube channel 'In a Nutshell' (formerly kurz gesagt) is a great way of introducing the concept of light. It is appropriate for any student of secondary age (Year 7-13) with some very short aspects that are a too complex for younger pupils to understand but which are not integral to the video itself.

It also makes reference to the electromagnetic spectrum so could be a great way of introducing this as a topic for Key Stage 4 (GCSE) pupils.
