Thistle Funnel

The thistle funnel apparatus is a laboratory tool consisting of a glass funnel with a long, curved tube attached at the base. It is commonly used in chemical laboratories for controlled addition of liquids to reaction vessels. The unique shape of the thistle funnel allows for precise and controlled pouring, minimizing splashing or spillage. The curved tube acts as a reservoir, providing a constant supply of liquid to the funnel without the need for continuous pouring. This apparatus is widely used in various experimental procedures, such as adding reagents dropwise or slowly to a reaction mixture, ensuring accurate and controlled liquid flow.


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.
