Reflect, bend, and divide light into colors!
Although no one knows who invented the prism, Sir Isaac Newton first studied prisms in 1666. He passed sunlight through a prism and called the band of separated colors a spectrum, which means "ghost of light." Optical devices such as binoculars, periscopes, and telescopes use right-angle prisms to change an image.
Have fun with light, colors, and magnification!
