Expert Answer:

Definitely, yes.


To create your own rainbow, you will need the following materials:

  • Water
  • Mirror
  • Scissors
  • Dark room
  • Flashlight/torch


Position your glass of water on a table and then place the mirror inside it at an angle. Make sure that the room is completely dark. Close all the curtains and the blinds so it gets pitch dark. Take the flashlight or your torch and aim the light towards the mirror that you placed inside the glass. Watch a rainbow appear from the angle of your mirror. Adjust the angle of the mirror as you like.
