Students can see sound vibrations through these three practical engaging experiments.
Students experiment with prisms and 3D cinema glasses to explain some of the interesting properties of light and their cinematic application.
In this activity students make their own zoetrope, which creates the illusion of a moving pictures by rapidly spinning individual static pictures. A movie is traditionally made from 24 frames of individual images played per second to create the moving picture. Originally a vintage toy from the 1830s, a zoetrope (...
