Kaleidoscope allows visitors to create fantastic visuals using colored props, light, and mirrors. Visitors start by placing different props into multi-colored bins at one end of the exhibit. Light shines through the base of the bins illuminating the objects within. Visitors can look through the eyepiece at the front of the Kaleidoscope to observe how the mirrors affect the shape of the objects in the bins. The Kaleidoscope has a twisted pulley system that allows visitors to watch as they spin the multicolored bins.
