A test tube apparatus consists of a simple yet versatile laboratory tool used for a wide range of experiments and analyses. It typically includes a test tube, a cylindrical container made of glass or plastic, with a rounded bottom and an open top. The test tube provides a small, controlled environment for conducting various tests, reactions, and observations. It can be easily held or placed in a test tube rack for stability. Test tube apparatus is commonly used in chemistry, biology, and other scientific disciplines for tasks such as mixing and heating small amounts of substances, performing chemical reactions, culturing microorganisms, or holding liquid samples for observation and analysis. Its compact size and ease of use make it an indispensable tool in laboratory settings.

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.
