It provides a cost-effective way for your students to study light and its interactions with matter.

A 12-volt transformer and 12 foot cord are also provided. The bulb rests in a base that can be rotated 180 degrees to position the bulb filament as needed. The station produces a clean, bright beam suitable for use in moderate to low-light classroom environments. The kit includes: The light station and power supply. One 15W V-filament light bulb.
