Product Details

Make ordinary objects invisible with this optics science kit for grades 7-12+
Resource for the STEM curriculum

The Invisibility Kit allows you to use a set of 4 lenses, a meter stick, and a little bit of math to make ordinary objects disappear before your very eyes! Making use of the refractive nature of light, the lenses cause light to bend around objects, rendering them INVISIBLE!

Its a light science experiment your students will not forget! Invisibility happens when an object that “should” bounce light into your eye does not. The object is present, but no light bounces from it into your eye, so it appears to “not be there”. Now, you can simply cover an object and no light from it will get into your eye, but that is not really invisibility in the way that we like to think about it. What we’d really like, is to be able to see around and behind the invisible object, as though it were not there at all. That’s a little more tricky. This kit makes things invisible by bending light around objects - allowing you to see what's behind them clearly!
