At this site from the Exploratorium, you'll find out how to make interference patterns with two pieces of Plexiglas™. The patterns, similar to the ones you may have seen in soap bubbles, change as you gently squeeze the Plexiglas™. The site also has an explanation of the physics involved and extension activities using a colored filter and a sodium-vapor lamp. This activity is part of Exploratorium's Science Snacks series.
