Explore the world of vision, shadows, and the effect of light with Tiger Tribe’s new STEAM activity set, Light and Shine - Playing with Optics. This super cool activity set includes 26 enlightening optical experiments.
Use the enclosed mirrors and create mandala pictures to draw and colour, or make your own Planetarium using constellation cards and the included torch. Trick your brain with a bunch of amazing optical illusions or explore the Stroop Effect! You can even create your own Thaumatrope — a brilliant optical toy that creates animated movement.
Light and Shine is a unique set designed to encourage open-ended play, trial-and-error exploration, teach problem-solving, and allow children to lead their play experience. All experiments are intended to help kids apply STEAM principals to the world around them, making maths and science relevant to things they experience everyday.
