With the materials in hand, here’s how to proceed:
- Open the magnifying glass to get the convex lens out of it.
- Take the shoebox and mark the size of the convex lens on one side of the box as shown in the video. Now, cut the shoebox along with the markings to make a hole.
- Use fevicol to fix the convex lens on the shoebox. Leave it to dry for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Take the phone stand that you learnt to make with us in the last video and place it inside the shoebox to place the phone on it.
- Adjust the height of the phone stand so that there is enough space left to close the box from the top.
- Cut the cover of the shoebox accordingly to fix it on the top along with the convex lens.
- The convex lens projects an inverted image. So keep your phone upside down inside the shoebox, on the phone stand, in order to get the correct output.
