Our potometer apparatus is a scientific instrument used to measure the rate of water uptake in plants. It consists of a transparent glass tube with a graduated scale, connected to a plant specimen. By immersing the cut end of the plant in water and monitoring the movement of an air bubble within the tube, the potometer allows for the measurement of water uptake, which provides insights into plant transpiration rates and water efficiency. The apparatus provides a visual and quantitative method for studying plant physiology and understanding how environmental factors affect plant water balance.


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.
