With the fischertechnik Optics & Lights kit students can investigate optical phenomena and experiment with light! The planetary model clearly demonstrates why the moon has phases or why solar and lunar eclipses occur. Optical lenses with various focal lengths, mirrors, lens tip lamps, and a variety of other parts allow construction of a microscope, magnifier, telescope, and periscope. With the periscope you can look around corners and the microscope makes tiny objects really big! With the sun dial you can determine the time of day, and the model with optical fiber demonstrates what total reflection is and how data can be transferred using light. This construction set gives young scientists a glimpse into the world of optics.
This Set Includes:
Instructional activity booklet
3x optical lenses (two focal lengths), mirrors, optical fiber, 2x lens tip lamps
