Students kit Primary Optics


Can light go around the corner? Are there coloured shadows? Why is it dark at night?
Light and shadow, colour and reflection are optical phenomenons, that fascinate children. Experiments will help them to understand the natural scientific facts behind the phenomenon.
The field of vision, the structure of the human eye and other secrets become comprehensible.
All experiments tie in with the experiences of the children. In a playful way they will find out the laws of reflection, the composition of light and optical illusions. Playing with shadows will lead to surprising discoveries.
