The American Educational 6 Piece Glass Lens Set has lenses with different curvatures for demonstrating optical principles and effects for students. The set includes one each of the following lenses: double-convex, plano-convex, double-concave, plano-concave, concavo-convex, and convexo-concave. Double-convex, plano-convex, and concavo-convex lenses converge light rays to a point, and convexo-concave lenses diverge light rays from a point. A convergent and a divergent lens paired together will cancel out the optical effect of each lens. Lenses are used in scientific experiments and classroom demonstrations.
Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom and homeschool-based projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.
American Educational Products manufactures learning materials in math, science, and reading/language arts for students in pre-kindergarten through grade 12, under the Scott Resources, Hubbard Scientific, National Teaching Aids, and Ginsberg Scientific brands. The company, founded in 1986, is headquartered in Fort Collins, CO.
