Paper Abstract

We have developed an educational optics learning tool, which allows students to work in parallel with a real hardware system and a matching, realistic looking, virtual model. We have implemented the idea as an educational laser-kit, and we describe the educational ideas behind it and our experience with its use for motivating and inspiring grade school teachers, educate high school students and train college students. The present system is a relatively advanced laser system consisting of a unique combination of a 2-D breadboard with magnetic mounts carrying the optical components and a corresponding, realistic 2-D display, layout and analysis software.
