This set enables children to construct kaleidoscopes themselves so as to gain a full understanding as to how they can see a brilliant rainbow of colours on the normally transparent plates. The polarizing plates and adhesive tape split up light according to wave length and direction, creating a rainbow pattern on the clear plates. Each set includes a paper tube, 3 mirrors, printed paper, caps for the top and bottom, a screw, a hexagonal clear plate, 2 polarizing plates and full construction instructions. Each kaleidoscope will measure approx 150mm when complete. Set of 6.
