Key points

Playing with Light – Up periscope and more... you’ll find out how light behaves and changes as it passes through lenses – and that includes the ones in your eyes! Ten great experiments include splitting light into its spectrum of colours with an ice cube; reflecting it with mirror signals; making a very early photographic device, the camera obscura, to show how images are made; and seeing how your eyes retain an image even after it’s no longer there!
