These cold drink coasters were based on the idea of a aurora borealis above Iceland.  I’ve always been amazed by the aurora borealis after viewing it as a small girl.  The science behind this is quiet amazing.  Students often gaze with amazement at the colours and the vastness.  This short informative video will help set an introduction and help with the concept of charged particles entering the atmosphere and excited atoms in the air creating the colors you see.
