Activities

Lens Kit Programme

Another ongoing project of HIF is the distribution of lens kits to school children. A set of concave and convex lenses are arranged to be distributed to children to make them aware of the principles of optics and astrophysics involved in the usage of lenses. They can be taught magnifying and minimising objects using lenses, focusing an image on a flat surface as in a camera obscura, making a telescope and such other activities, including the making of fire using a convex lens, concentrating the solar rays at a spot, leading on to lessons in solar energy and other alternative sources of clean energy. HIF wants our children to go deep into the macro and micro world around him and go out into the outer bounds of the universe in search of wider and better knowledge on everything around them.
