Light, Color, and Optics Kit

A complete set of equipment for exploring light, color, and optical technology. Includes an optics bench, the wireless light source, viewing screen lenses, mirrors, diffraction grating.

Special Features

  • Long lasting, rechargeable battery
  • Four controllable outer LEDs and a controllable inner RGB LED
  • Control the intensity of the LEDs wirelessly using PASCO software.
  • Wireless data collection to computers, Chromebooks™, or tablets.

Description

Overview

Light, Color, and Optics Kit is a complete laboratory for learning about light, color, and optical technology. Three 50 mm optics mounts slide easily and then lock down with thumbscrews. The light source makes a perfect illuminated “object” for optics experiments, and the fixed spacing of the colored LEDs makes it easy to observe and measure image properties such as magnification, inversion, and brightness.

A key component of Light, Color, and Optics Kit, this rechargeable light source EP-3560. It has four colored LEDs at the edges and a powerful RGB LED in the center. It also connects directly to your devices and streams data via Bluetooth 4.0. The light source makes a perfect illuminated “object” for optics experiments, and the fixed spacing of the colored LEDs makes it easy to observe and measure image properties such as magnification, inversion, and brightness. Control the intensity of the LEDs wirelessly using PASCO software (SPARKvue Software or PASCO Capstone). The rechargeable light source lasts all day and you never need batteries! The four colored LEDs (R/Y/G/B) on a 10 mm spacing make it easy to make precise magnification measurements and see image inversion.

The bright central LED is actually 3-in-1 and includes separately controlled red, green and blue (RGB) sources. This allows you to teach the technology of color with powerful lessons that apply to many technologies such as LCD screens, digital cameras, video, and fiber optic communications.
