Paper Abstract

The design and fabrication of a demonstration kit (EduKit) for secondary school students is described. We present the final iteration of the layout of the EduKit and outline some of the simple experiments which the kit is intended to show. The mass replication techniques used in the production of this project are described and the final educational outcomes of the project are discussed.
