How can I make a prism?

Answer

A prism is a device that separates white light into its colored components, creating a rainbow effect. To make a prism, choose a day and time when strong sunlight will stream in through the windows in your house. Turn off the lights in your room, and cover any windows. Create a single mall opening in your window covering, and hold up a colorless piece of glass directly in the path of the thin beam of sunlight that comes in through this opening.When the sunlight passes through the glass, you should be able to see a rainbow-like effect on the opposite wall.
