Research optical phenomena and experiment with light! The planetary model provides a visual explanation of the phases of the moon as well as solar and lunar eclipses. Optical lenses with different focal lengths, mirrors, LED light barriers, and a large number of parts allow students to build a microscope, magnifying glass, telescope, and periscope. The sundial can be used to tell the time. The model uses fiber optics to explain what a total reflection is, and how light can be used to transmit data. This educational construction set gives students an in-depth look at the world of optics and light. Optics & Lights can be used in both supervised and unsupervised learning, and is part of the basic equipment at many schools.
