STEM on a shoestring is a set of resources created to support the public engagement efforts of the EPSRC & MRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Optical Medical Imaging (OPTIMA) which is shared between the University of Edinburgh and the University of Strathclyde. This activity is suitable for children aged 3 and above. It explains what filters do and how they absorb some wavelengths of light as demonstrated by sorting Smarties into different colours with and without filters.

The Scots Gaelic translation was provided by Dr Ingeborg Birnie from the University of Strathclyde.
