Everything you need to conduct dozens of optical demos, labs and experiments in one easy-to-use kit!

Performing experiments involving refraction, reflection, color, and color mixing is a breeze with our versatile, but affordable Light Box & Optical Set. The Complete Set features an easy-to-use, virtually unbreakable light box and collimating lens, plus a full set of lenses, acrylic blocks, half-round and parabolic mirrors, slit plates, color cards, and color filters. With just this one kit, you and your students get everything you need to:

  • Create single or multiple parallel, convergent or divergent beams.
  • Blend up to three colors on a screen to study color mixing.
  • Create and test complex light paths from theoretical layouts.
  • And perform many more light and color experiments.

The included instruction manual is packed with ideas for a broad range of exciting and "illuminating" experiments covering the requirements for practically every grade level. The kit includes a spare 12v, 36-watt bulb and special three-part molded styrene pack for safe, easy storage and transportation of the light box and all accessories. A power supply capable of producing 12 volts at 3 amps is required.

A power supply is required and not included. Our P4-7250 Power Supply is a great value.


There are many state and national science standards at different levels that can be addressed using the Light Box & Optical Set. Some examples are provided here; however, you should check with your state to find its exact standards.

  • Light interacts with matter by transmission (including refraction), absorption, or scattering (including refraction). To see an object, light from that object - either emitted by the object or scattered by it- must enter the eye.

  • Explain how we see colors of objects, including how different media refract, transmit, or absorb light.
  • Investigate sources of light and how light behaves when it strikes different objects.
Products being sold are not toys. They are for Educational / Laboratory use only. They are not for use by children 12 and under.
