How does a submarine find objects above water? How can you peer through walls? Introduce kids to the wonders of optics and reflectifity with Smartivity’s Periscope.
A periscope is an instrument for observing over, around, or through an object by using mirrors aligned in a particular pattern so that images are reflected multiple times and carried to the viewer, no matter what is blocking their direct view.
Once it’s assembled, build the ship and place it where you can practice using the periscope to observe!
The laser-cut wooden pieces are also a blank canvas. Use your own paints or markers to decorate it any way you want!
