Kaleydescope, which enables the formation of patterns in different colors by the refraction of the light reflected from the outside; It is a tool also known as kaleidoscope because the patterns inside are similar to flowers. It is expressed as a pipe and binocular shape that is covered with semi-matt glass on one side, colored glasses are placed inside, and that creates quite different and beautiful shapes thanks to the mirrors around it as it is rotated. When we look at the kaleidoscope working principle; The inside of these binoculars is painted black or a dark color. It has 3 mirrors adjacent to it at 60 degree angles. Between the mirrors, there are different materials such as pieces of colored glass, sequins, feathers, and fine beads. When viewed through binoculars, different shapes and polygons are seen. Technologically, it gains importance in terms of blur effect.

In this STEAM event, we will both have fun and learn important concepts about light. We aim to re-evaluate the materials that exist in their homes with primary school 2nd grade students, and to gain the ability to both evaluate waste and be thrifty. Thanks to this activity, our students will learn about the formation of light flashes, reflection and refraction of light.
