A compact, easy to setup ripple tank which takes all of the hassle out of setting up this traditional apparatus. The Inspire Ripple Tank includes all of the accessories required to cover the entire of range of ripple tank experiments including: reflection, refraction, diffraction and interference with the accessories being stored in a handy tray on the front of the unit so that all of the parts can be easily accessed and accounted for at the end of the lesson.
