Description:

This fun activity uses simple materials such as milk cartons and mirrors to introduce the ideas of optics and visual perception. The project is easy to do, however adult assistance may be needed to help learners cut out the cartons. Once they build their periscopes, participants can have fun looking over, under and around things. This activity can also be linked to other spy themed projects or a discussion on submarines and underwater exploration.
