Optical Science

Colors, perspective, light, and numerous other factors affect the way we see our world. The Optical Science kit is an in-depth exploration into the human ability to process information through our eyes. 35 different experiments are included in this incredible, hands-on kit. The Optical Science kit is your introduction to the amazing science behind light, optics, and visual perception.
 
Young optic scientists will engage in activities that explore optical illusions, light and the color spectrum, how a human eye is similar to a camera, and more while building a fiber optic peacock, diffraction glasses, a camera obscura, and pinhole glasses. This kit is a must-have for any scientist showing interest in the science of sight. Children will also see first hand how their eye and brain work together to see color, light, depth, perspective, size, shape and motion. Those are just some of the activities and topics that are explored. It's 35 different activities in all!
 
Don't settle for learning from just another box of experiments! With the Optical Science kit, young scientists will be getting an experience.
