What is light? Answer this question and more with a light experiment kit and optical products for kids.

Light is a type of energy called electromagnetic radiation. This form of energy is also used in x-ray machines, microwaves, and radios. But the electromagnetic radiation that we can see is called visible light.

Optics manipulate light by reflecting or bending it so we can see in different ways. Telescopes, microscopes, and kaleidoscopes all use lenses and mirrors as optics.

Teach students the science behind light and optics with an optics experiment kit. Get an optic bench kit and experiment with lenses. Use inexpensive binoculars for terrestrial and lunar viewing. And a spectroscope uses diffraction grating to break the light down into its color components. It's how scientists are able to identify the properties of stars.
