Light Twister Science Kit
The physics of light is a fascinating and important branch of science that has enabled many technological advances. The light twister STEM kit let your child/children carry out fun and simple experiments about one of the rarely discussed properties of light waves, that is, its polarizability. It is the property of light that is exploited to make the modern computer or phone screen display, 3D cinematic experience, advanced photography, and many other applications. Moreover, your child/children will learn that some materials have special ability to twist light waves and this also has many uses and applications. Build, twist, and be amazed by the beautiful hidden pattern in seemingly mundane and boring transparent objects!
Introduce the concept of light as a group of waves that wiggles in all sorts of directions. How these waves can be made to move in a same way through a device called the polarizer and discuss in simple terms the effects and applications. Carry out simple experiments using a lamp, two polarizer plates, scotch tape, and sugar solutions where they will reveal themselves the “hidden” colors of the seemingly plain and boring objects.
