Jelly Filters Science
Use colored "Jell-O" to create filters for predicting how projected images will look when viewed through them.
Gelatin Lens Science
Use clear gelatin to construct convex and concave lenses to observe their influence on light rays.
Rainbow Science Digi-Kit not yet Available
Using a diffraction grating, determine what makes up white light.
Polarizer Science Digi-Kit not yet Available
Observe the effect of polarizers on light, and draw connections to animals that can perceive polarized light.
Thermopaper Science Digi-Kit not yet Available
Observe selective reflectivity of thermopaper as the temperature is changed.
Flex Mirror Science Digi-Kit not yet Available
Use a flexible piece of mirror paper or Mylar to change the shape of a mirror and observe changes in the image produced.
