3D Hologram Projector

A hologram is a way to create a 3D image or video. In this activity, children will learn how to make a simple hologram projector and experiment with how the hologram projector works. The hologram projector reflects, refracts, and transmits light from a mobile phone placed beneath it to create a 3D animation into the viewer’s eyes.
