A plastic cuvette is reused from Olympiad box 1 as well as, for the official tasks on the internet, the black plastic optics box. Olympiad box 2 adds the following:
• Laser distance meter
• Optical fibres
• Felt pad for screening
• Instructions for the exercises
And for use in the official exercises:
• Angle iron
• Neodymium magnet
• Adhesive pads
The original exercises can be downloaded from the internet – but they are very demanding for students (especially in terms of mathematics).
We have therefore prepared lab manuals in a version suitable for less exceptional students.
The experiments included cover
• The speed of light in an optical fibre
• The speed of light in water
Olympiad box 2 is suitable for physics at upper secondary level.
