Did you know that mirrors known as acoustic mirrors can reflect sound waves? We have an elastic lens in our eyes that bends light rays so that they form a clear image at the back of the eye (retina).
With this fun filled DIY kit let’s learn about mirrors, lenses and their interaction with light with six awesome activities.
- Rectilinear propagation of light i.e. Light travels in straight lines
- Reflection vs. Refraction
- Types of mirrors: Plane, Convex and Concave
- Bi-convex Lens
- Image formation and focal length of mirrors and lens
- Differentiate between primary, secondary and tertiary colours
- Properties of Image formed in a plane mirror
- Curved Mirrors: Concave mirror
- Curved Mirrors: Convex mirror
- Forming an image on a screen with lens
- Making a projector
- Colour mixing
