DIY Kaleidoscope | Light Project

Kaleidoscope:
Make your own Kaleidoscope and understand:
• Symmetry through reflections in mirrors
• How patterns are created by multiple reflections.

Do an exercise using a plane mirror to find lines of symmetry of different shapes

Kaleidoscope-ia!

Perhaps one of the easiest fun experiments ever, the kaleidoscope is a simple and extremely enjoyable experiment to demonstrate the effect of three mirrors’ reflections on symmetry, patterns and multiple images.

With this enjoyable experiment, we first teach you how various figures, images and even letters of the alphabet, present a symmetrical image when reflected by a mirror!

This property is later again demonstrated by using a mirror to display the symmetry of all sorts of shapes, and even road signs!

With the practical knowledge of these experiments, we are now ready to build our very own kaleidoscope!

With the help of three mirrors that are angled perfectly with the help of the kaleidoscope apparatus provided in this kit, we display the various beautiful patterns that can be created by this device to provide for hours of fun and awe!

This Do-It-Yourself experiment can help your child understand the fundamental effect of mirrors on patterns, by using light to reflect various objects to create awe-striking images. This kit can help develop the observational skills of a child, whilst increasing their appreciation of science around them!

A world of Mirrors!

When light and a number of mirrors angled properly are combined to form a device, children can enjoy hours of fun by using the very beautiful and easy-to-make kaleidoscope.

But what is the science behind this worldwide merriment? How does it work?

We explain this to you, right from scratch!

This kit first teaches you how numerous images, figures and even letters of the alphabet, present a symmetrical image when reflected by a mirror!

This property is later again demonstrated by using a mirror to display the symmetry of all sorts of shapes and signs, including road signs!
