What enables us to see objects in mirrors? There is something called the ‘law of reflection’, which states that light that hits a mirror will bounce back at the same angle at which it hit the mirror initially. This cool science phenomenon also works on different types of mirrors. A concave mirror is curved inwards therefore it reflects light inwards so it is directed to one focal point.

This allows images to be magnified depending on the distance from the mirror itself. Some images almost looks like the image is floating! Due to its incredible amplification features, concave mirrors are often used in telescopes and also for beauty mirrors.

Recommended for six years and over. Not suitable for children under three years of age.
