Optical Light Fest
When light came into action!
Oberoi International School
The students designed and built optical instruments ranging from a kaleidoscope, telescope, a periscope, a microscope, a 3D model of an eye, a Homemade projector ,microscope and so many more.They demonstrated how the instrument works and how they have applied their understanding about the Light in making the Instrument.
These scientists really helped these seventh graders!

In addition they also Prepared a manual that explains the purpose of each part of your instrument, how it works. They also included an evaluation of their design.The manual consisted of full and complete understanding of the topic.
Here are some images
Looks like they had fun!Thank you !

The optical instrument showcase was amazing, my favorite one was the telescope, made of paper and a few lenses, you could zoom in with it, and it allowed you to see further like any metal telescope would. But, the image was inverted.That wasn't the only interesting thing, as a lot of them were interesting. The makers new fully how the instrument worked and could explain it clearly, they also knew how to make it. The manuals explained a lot and explained in detail and were easy to understand.

I liked the telescopes. All the telescopes were very well designed and the makers had a lot of information about it. The manuals were very well designed and had clear diagrams which explained lots. All the makers were able to explain in detail the function of their telescope in detail.I also enjoyed the virtual reality because it showed use of a simple cardboard box,lenses and one mobile application. A regular virtual reality machine costs a lot but this made a virtual reality without it costing a lot.
I really liked the instrument which was the telescope . Because there was a lot of thought put into the making of the inside. I understood the function of how they made a telescope with different types of materials. Next time they could try different lenses so they can spot the difference between the different types of lenses because maybe we can get a different view from a different angle.
