Everything you need to conduct dozens of ray optics and color experiments in one easy-to-use kit!

This affordable Light Box and Optical Set makes it easy to perform experiments involving the optics of lenses, mirrors, and prisms, as well as providing a versatile way to display primary and secondary colors; and both additive and subtractive color mixing. The double-ended light box contains a 12V/20W halogen lamp powered by a wall-mount AC adapter and cooled by a built-in fan. One end carries a cylindrical lens and slots for mounting the three slit diaphragms for ray optics. The other end carries two adjustable mirrors and an open area for color mixing and subtraction.

The complete set comes with a comprehensive assortment of lenses, prisms, acrylic blocks, mirrors, slit plates, color filters, and color paddles along with a manual of experiments.  It comes in a sturdy box with molded storage inserts.
