What happens if Alice takes a magic trip inside a conic arrangement of mirrors? Puzzled? Wait until you see Alice’s cubes and icosahedrons! We will see how many triangles make up a cube or a dodecahedron using 3D-kaleidoscopes. We will look at reflections and rotations in the three dimensional space.
