Island 5 Fischertechnik- Optics: Microscopes and Teloscopes

Microscopes and Teloscopes

Fischertechnik Optics Kit

The planetary model provides a visual explanation of the phases of the moon as well as solar and lunar eclipses. Optical lenses with different focal lengths, mirrors, LED light barriers, and a large number of parts allow  POP students to build a microscope, magnifying glass, telescope, and periscope. The sundial can be used to tell the time. The model uses fiber optics to explain what a total reflection is, and how light can be used to transmit data. This educational construction set gives  POP students an in-depth look at the world of optics and light. 

Key Learning Objectives at this Island:

  • Research optical phenomena and experiment with light.

  • POP students will understand the key points refraction, reflection, light and shadows, fiber optics, and optical illusions.

  • POP students will understand how lenses work with different focal lengths, LEDs, mirrors, fiber optics, LED light barriers, and much more.

  • POP students will build a microscope, magnifying glass, telescope, periscope, sun dial, Morse telegraph, planetary model, and much more.

  • Deepen and practice project and group collaboration.
