Aquafier Magnifying Lens Kit Review

The Aquafier Magnifying Lens Kit gives you a whole new way to build a one-of-a-kind magnifying glass using a few simple things: two large clear plastic fiber optic quality lenses, an oversized custom-made rubber band and WATER!


Water Works

There are tons of magnifying glasses out there, but the Aquafier is the only "kit" that lets kids make their own magnifying lens in seconds. To do so, all you must do is submerge the 3-inch lenses in a sink of water to capture the water inside. Then place the large rubber band around the outside of the lenses to hold them in place. The water in the lenses then works as a high-quality magnifier that is near glass quality and creates a near 5x (5 times) magnification!

How It Works

The Aquafier works because of something called refractive index - a simple scientific principle about magnification! The Aquafier is fun and can teach you about things like science, physics and optics, which you’ll need to learn about for school anyway!


It costs just $9.95 (plus S&H) and you can get it at www.myaquafier.com.

And its just better that way. because I've been homeschooled since 3rd grade and I'm in 8th grade now,  I have a very small social life. I have done stuff like dance and cheerleading but still, I only have one good friend (actually she is AWESOME!)

There are plenty of educational books, videos, and websites that are easily accessible online or from the library (seriously, Khan Academy and Crash Course saved my life, bless those men). nice! I have asked my local school but they refused because I'm not vaccinated (we don't believe in vaccines) but NY is one of the strictest  states for homeschool. we are moving and I might be able to go to high school but I could always stick with homeschool. With the social side, i have lots a lot of my social skills so now I'm really shy but i can work and fix that
