Product Details

No need to bust your budget buying expensive optics benches when your students can explore basic optics principles utilizing a meter stick and simple attachments. Students will discover how light travels and how lenses can affect its travel. In addition, students will learn the basic properties of lenses by conducting a series of hands-on lab experiments. Buy multiple kits for your entire class for less than the price of one expensive optics bench!

This kit includes a single meter stick optics bench setup that has a meter stick, meter stick support, two experimental lenses, lens support, two candles, candle holder, optic target, screen support and complete kit instructions.
