See the distorted reflection in a curved mirror as you draw on the board.
Reflect a distorted image in a curved mirror to make it look right.
View your own distorted reflection in curved (concave and convex) mirrors.
Place an object on the photoluminescent screen and see how the shadow persists for a while after using the light.
See the two lasers inside the box. Turn the lenses and mirrors to see how the lasers are bent and bounced (refracted and reflected).
Use coloured plastic filters to see how they affect white light.
Trace shapes while looking at the reflection of your hands in a mirror instead of looking directly at your hands.
See multiple reflections by using a selection of mirrors in a partitioned box. Try to reflect the image onto the screen at the end of the maze.
Dismantle the large eye models and remake them. Use the 3d glasses to view the image.
Project 3 coloured lights onto a screen and observe the mixed colours and the shadows of objects.
Investigate light transmission and reflection using a light and a bundle of optical cables.
Observe a light or bright object through the three different pinhole cameras. See the differences.
Spin the zoetrope and watch the images through the side to see how they appear to move.
