Spectacular Solar Radiometers from Curious Minds!

We are in the middle of a heat wave and the time to teach your children about Solar Radiometers has never been better!

Crookes Solar RadiometerHelp you children understand and have fun with what is happening right outside their bedroom windows with this amazing curiosity item. Invented by Sir William Crookes in 1873 and also known as a light mill, the Solar Radiometer is made of an airtight glass bulb. Inside this bulb you will find a set of what is called vanes, mounted on a spindle.

These vanes within the glass bulb will spin when exposed to light. The more intense the light it is exposed to, the faster the vanes will spin, giving a quantitative measurement of electromagnetic radiation intensity.
