Q: What makes this kit unique?A: This is the first science kit available that lets an experimenter build a working light bulb. Don't confusethis kit with other “light bulb” kits that are just simple circuit kits where students wire bulbs together in seriesor parallel with batteries. This kit also integrates science, technology, and math with concepts of history andinvention.Q: Can I use the kit for quantitative experiments?A: Yes this kit works well for quantitative experiments and suggestions and examples are included in theexperiment guide. It is possible to measure voltage and current and build a data table. It is also possible tocalculate filament resistance. This kit may also be used with data logging or probeware equipment to addcomputer technology to the experiments. With probeware it is also possible to measure light intensity andheat from the experiments.Q: Can I use the kit in a Science Fair?A: Yes this kit works well as a science fair experiment and instructions and tips for science fair use areincluded in the instruction manual. Do make sure to talk all science fair plans over with your teacher or thesponsor of the science fair before committing to any experiment. We are very proud that two high schoolstudents from California have used this kit to win their school, local, state, and regional science fair. Theythen went on to place in the Intel
national science fair!Q: How can I share my data?A: You can share your data in two ways. Firstly detail your experiments including pictures, descriptions, andany data you collect. Then:1)Post your data to your own blog or social media site such as Face Book (contact us and we'll link to it)2)Send your data to us and we'll post it to our blog/social media.We also encourage you to video tape your experiments and post the video to a site such as You Tube.Q: How is the classroom set different from the individual kit?A: The individual kit contains all the contents listed above. A classroom set contains 8 individual kits, minustheir experiment guides and instead includes a more detailed instructor manual that includes teacher tips.Q: Where can I find more experiments and ideas for my kit?A: Check out the “resources tab” on the product page for the kit. Also keep an eye on our social media.
