In 1816, Scotsman Dr. David Brewster was the first to arrange mirrors and

objects in a tube and call it a kaleidoscope.

Not just a toy, the device also was intended for use by designers and artists,

who might be inspired by the beautiful patterns they could create.

Brewster patented his invention in 1817.

CULTURAL KALEIDOSCOPE EXPLAINED

 

Each country of Europe has it's own culture, however cultures influence one another, and changes within one culture continualy take place.When different cultures come into contact, they exchange conceps and we can speak about cultural transfer.

The kaleidoscope is a toy through which one can look through to view beautiful, multicolored, shifting images and patterns.So in our project called e-cultural Kaleidoscope we present culture of  Europe and beyond Europe as beautiful, changing and interconnected. Looking through the kaleidoscope usual things become extraordinary, so we will look at our cultures through the eye of kaleidoscope to see Europe's  changing colous, sights and impressions. We will also bring countries and cultures together.

A LITTLE BIT OF SCIENCE

CREATE YOUR OWN KALEDOSCOPE,

DECORSTE IT WITH NATIONAL SYMBOLS

TAKE PHOTOS, RECORD A VIDEO,

TELL US WHAT MATERIALS YOU USED,

PRESENT YOUR KALEIDOSCOPE


A kaleidoscope is a cylinder with mirrors containing loose, colored objects such as beads or pebbles and bits of glass. As the viewer looks into one end, light entering the other creates a colorful pattern, due to the reflection off of the mirrors. Coined in 1817 by Scottish inventor Sir David Brewster, "kaleidoscope" is derived from the Ancient Greek καλός (kalos), "beautiful, beauty",εἶδος (eidos), "that which is seen: form, shape" and σκοπέω (skopeō), "to look to, to examine",hence "observer of beautiful forms."

SPANISH STUDENTS CREATING KALEIDOSCOPES

 

BEAUTIFUL IMAGES INSIDE THE KALEIDOSCOPE


IT LOOKS LIKE MAGIC

BUT IT IS SCIENCE

By creating the kaleidoscopes students learnt that

 a collection of ordinary things such as buttons, beads or glass pieces can be transformed into a complicated and beautiful design inside the kaleidoscope. This is due in part to the principle of symmetry.

In a kaleidoscope, each repeated image is symmetrical in relation to the image beside it. 

 

 

 

Look at our smartboard - there are students from our partner schools

giving us some ideas of how they created their kaleidoscopes:
