By using lenses and mirrors, you can bounce, shift, reflect, shatter, and split a laser beam. Since the laser beam is so narrow and focused, you’ll be able to see several reflections before it fades away from scatter. Make sure you complete the Laser Basics experiment first before working with this experiment.


You’ll need to make your beam visible for this experiment to really work.  There are several different ways you can do this:

    can you just tape thousands of small mirrors to a strip of paper and fold it into a hall of mirrors

    This is like that game, gah, what was it called? Oh yeah, The Laser Game. I’m not kidding, thats what its called! Theres a Silver side and a Gold side (or silver and red for the newer version), and each side has an LED laser pointer. The 3 types of pieces (single mirror, double mirror, and Pharoah (the goal piece)) had to be manipulated to hit the other team’s Pharoah or pyramids (single mirrors), removing them from the game, and if the Pharoah is hit, then game over. Theres an expansion thats just basically a tower that goes in the middle and allows for more stratagy.

    All in all, its really fun! Stradegy and science come together in a way thats fun!
