Product Details

Shine a light on the topics of reflection, refraction and diffraction! In eight laboratory experiments, students will use a simple laser pointer to measure the angle of reflection, determine the index of reflection of water, learn about polarization, observe and evaluate total internal reflection, and use the property of diffraction to measure the wavelength of light generated by the laser pointer. Nine teacher demonstration activities are also provided to help bring these unusual properties of light to life in your classroom. This kit is a bargain!

Includes detailed student handouts, background information, teacher notes and enough materials for one student group. Some common household and laboratory items are required for the teacher demonstrations. A laser pointer is required and available separately.
