Concerned about your student's remote learning "slide" due to a lack of access to resources? We want to make it easy for teachers and parents to get their children excited about physics while being required to learn from home. That's why we've compiled a list of products that provides students with a hands-on experience to better help understand difficult concepts.
At Home Physics
Physics AT HOME Experience Kit
Bring science exploration home and spark your student’s curiosity with this unique kit. Each item in the kit is sure to get a “whoa!” when your son or daughter has a real hands-on experience. Physics fundamentals can be fun to learn with the right tools, and this kit does just that! Designed to be used throughout the academic year with experiences in forces, energy, motion, pressure, gas laws, electricity, magnetism, and sound and waves.
Investigating Electrical Circuits Kit
With this easy-connecting kit, students learn the fundamentals of electricity by building various circuits, and then are introduced to the concepts of voltage, resistance, and electrical current.
This kit is designed for student inquiry and discovery, and the instructional guide emphasizes that understanding the concepts should precede calculations. The investigations are related to the basic concepts: open and closed circuits, series circuits, parallel circuits, and combination circuits.
Magnetic Color Chips
These Multi-colored plastic-coated iron chips are not only easy to handle and clean up, but also heaps of fun! This alternative to iron filings puts some color and excitement into the exploration of 3-dimensional magnetic fields. By connecting magnets in a variety of shapes, students can see dynamic changes within the magnetic field lines. Place a strong magnet under a sheet of white cardboard and sprinkle these on for an amazing effect.
Introductory Optical System
This simple but elegant Optical System is designed for basic optics experiments, and a great alternative to the traditional mounted optical benches. Students can now easily make the common measurements of image and focal distance with the included lenses, pinhole configurations, and 2-sided screen.
This setup make learning optics at home easy. With no cords to connect or large hardware to assemble, the Introductory Optical System is perfect for any at home learning environment.
This easy-to-assemble kit provides hands-on, practical building experience while fueling imagination with history. Perfect for at home learning, this fun and exciting Trebuchet kit will help your students study energy conservation, levers, trajectories, inertia, forces, and more!.
Each kit includes assembly instructions and internet resource materials that provide investigations into the theory of operation, mathematical modeling, history, and more!
Primary Color Light Sticks
Demonstrate refraction, reflection, color, and color mixing with these low cost and easy to use light sticks.
- Create single or multiple parallel, convergent or divergent beams
- Study color mixing
- Create and test complex light paths from theoretical layouts
- And much, much more
Color Filters Set
This kit includes six 8" x 10" filters of primary and secondary colors, complete with spectrum graphs making it ideal for at home learning.
Students can use these color filters to study how colors are produced and analyse the spectrum given off by a light bulb. This simple kit brings excitement and engagement to a remote learning situation.
This inexpensive yet essential equipment is ideal for the at home learning environment. Use this spectroscope to observe the light spectra produced by different types of light.
Ever wonder what stars are made of? Spectroscopes are designed to disperse or separate white light from a star into a very wide spectrum of colors — much wider than a normal prism does. When spread very wide, black lines appear in the spectrum.
Concave Convex Lens Set
Lenses bend light in useful ways. Most device such as telescopes, and cameras that control light have one or more concave or convex lenses in them. Some equipment uses only mirrors, which can do most of the same things that lenses can do.
These crown glass lenses are perfect for at home optical benches or basic optics demonstrations. Each set includes double convex, plano-convex, concavo-convex, double concave, plano-concave, and convexo-concave lenses.
