Our glass rod apparatus is a simple yet versatile tool commonly used in laboratory settings. It consists of a glass rod, typically made of borosilicate glass, which is known for its high resistance to thermal stress.
Our glass rod apparatus is a simple yet versatile tool commonly used in laboratory settings. It consists of a glass rod, typically made of borosilicate glass, which is known for its high resistance to thermal stress. The glass rod has a smooth and uniform surface, allowing for easy handling and manipulation. This apparatus finds various applications, such as stirring solutions, transferring small amounts of liquid, or serving as a support for other laboratory equipment. Its transparent nature enables easy observation of any reactions or changes occurring during experiments. The glass rod apparatus is a fundamental tool in scientific laboratories due to its durability, ease of use, and compatibility with a wide range of chemical substances.
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.
