Nancy B's Science Club Reflections Kaleidoscope
Experiment with the mirrors of this kaleidoscope and change the number of images you see. Change out the colored, shaped gems and make new designs too. Kaleidoscopes are always cool, but it’s really cool to change it up like this! You can even add liquids to the color chamber – ooooohhhh! Did you know that kaleidoscopes teach us physics? The activity journal includes interesting information as well as drawing and writing space. What’s the difference between a teleidoscope and a kaleidoscope? Who created the first kaleidoscope? What do tessellations and formal gardens have to do with all this? Have a blast with the experiments and enjoy your very own kaleidoscope! ~Sara
Discover the beauty of light! Adjust the mirrors to change the patterns you see, add your own objects to the water-tight chamber to create new patterns, or remove the chamber to view the world with a brilliant kaleidoscope effect!
