As the name suggests, this book explores the science behind mirrors and lenses. Using "dirt cheap" materials like water glasses, aluminum foil and metal spoons, you'll discover how images form and how light can be put to many different uses. In addition to hands-on experiments, the book features simple, yet accurate explanations of the science behind the subject.
