This comprehensive kit with light/ray box and 29 optical components is ideal for performing a large variety of reflection, refraction, and color mixing experiments. The light/ray box consists of a 12V, 24A halogen lamp producing convergent, divergent or parallel beams. One end contains an adjustable cylindrical convex lens (for parallel beam), and on the other end a triple aperture system for color mixing experiments (lateral aperture is provided with adjustable hinged mirror). All apertures in the box are provided with vertical channels to hold slit plates and color filters. Kit comes with a comprehensive instruction guide with 18 activities
