Product Details

Up periscope! Construct and demonstrate the inner workings of a simple periscope. Periscopes are optical devices used to observe objects from a concealed position. As students turn one of the mirrors of the periscope the image seen will be rotated. A great activity to teach about reflection and ray diagrams! Includes detailed assembly instructions, Teachers Notes and complete materials for one demonstration setup.

Concepts: Reflection, periscopes.
Time Required: 20 minutes
