This book looks at what reflections are and how we can use them. - Mirrors reflect light back at exactly the same angle. You can make a “mirror book” to explore symmetry and multiple reflections. - Why does a straight straw look bent in a glass of water? Experiment using air, oil, and water to see how different materials affect the speed of light. - Look at how our eyes use reflected light to see and make a pinhole camera to show how the eye works. And much more!
