Not long ago, fiber optics was little more than a laboratory curiosity...
Physicists and scientists in research labs were the only people doing much work in this field. In the last 20 years, all that has changed. From the obscure beginnings in the back of a lab, fiber optics and optical fibers have become an important and rapidly changing technology. It employs many of the world's brightest individuals and scientists.
With the Adventures in Fiber Optics Kit, students learn by doing. The kit contains 25 different experiments, plus 5 unique projects. Each activity contains step-by-step instructions and an explanation of the results as well as historical facts or scientific trivia on fiber optics. Kit includes: penlight, rubber light hood, 6 different optical fiber types, Ulexite fiber optic rock, 3 coherent fiber optic components, colored filters, lens, star/constellation map, polishing film and other miscellaneous components.
