The electroscope flask apparatus is a specialized device used in scientific experiments and demonstrations involving static electricity. It consists of a glass flask with a metal rod extending from its stopper into the interior.
The electroscope flask apparatus is a specialized device used in scientific experiments and demonstrations involving static electricity. It consists of a glass flask with a metal rod extending from its stopper into the interior. At the top of the metal rod, there is a metal disk or plate that serves as the sensing element. The apparatus is grounded by attaching a wire to the metal rod, allowing the transfer of electric charge. When an electric charge is applied to the metal plate, the rod inside the flask will repel or attract the charge, indicating the presence and nature of the static electricity. The electroscope flask apparatus is commonly used in physics and electrostatics experiments to study and analyze electrical phenomena.
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.
