Space Explorers

In this laboratory we revisit the law of reflection as it applies to mirrors. Students will be able to piece together their knowledge of how light interacts with transparent matter, such as glass, and compare how it interacts with reflective materials.

In the conclusion of the lab, students will apply the law of reflection to deduce how large a mirror would be needed in order to see themselves head-to-toe, keeping the mirror and body fixed in place.
