The convex lens apparatus is a simple optical device consisting of a convex lens and a support structure. The convex lens is a transparent lens that bulges outwards in the middle and is thinner at the edges.
The convex lens apparatus is a simple optical device consisting of a convex lens and a support structure. The convex lens is a transparent lens that bulges outwards in the middle and is thinner at the edges. It is designed to converge incoming light rays, bringing them to a focus at a specific point known as the focal point. The lens is securely mounted within the apparatus, allowing for easy manipulation and positioning. This apparatus is commonly used in physics and optics experiments to study the behavior of light, including principles such as refraction, image formation, and magnification. It provides a practical and hands-on way to explore the properties of convex lenses and their applications in various optical systems.
For many learners high school is not enough to prepare them for what they are to face at first year university. They find themselves completely overwhelmed and intimidated by what is expected of them to be able to do in a laboratory.
Unfortunately many learners who want to pursue science subjects go through this dilemma, few as they are because fact is SA is not producing enough learners who will become engineers, doctors, science researchers, let alone science innovators.
To address this, we developed a chemistry kits with 52 experiments for use by learners at home. This gives them an opportunity to gain hand-on exposure and engagement, confidence and understanding they need to study sciences further.
The kit comes with a manual explaining how science is experienced in daily life and therefore brings awareness of the application and usefulness of science, helping the learner relate to what they learn at school.
Some schools do have kits where only the teacher demonstrates the experiments and this is great, but you don’t master driving by watching the driving instructor, you must get in the driver’s seat yourself.
