Our mortar and pestle apparatus features a 125ml capacity and is a versatile tool commonly used in laboratories and kitchens. The mortar is a sturdy bowl made of materials like porcelain, ceramic, or glass, while the pestle is a solid tool with a rounded end. This traditional grinding set is used to manually crush, grind, or mix solid substances into fine powders or pastes. The 125ml capacity provides ample space for various quantities of materials to be processed. The mortar’s rough interior surface and the pestle’s weight make it efficient for reducing particle sizes or blending ingredients. It is an essential tool for tasks like preparing pharmaceutical compounds, grinding herbs and spices, or creating powdered samples for scientific analysis.
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.
