    This is the first in what will hopefully be a series of Physics "Labs" made in Unity. Optics Lab allows teachers and students to experiment with different optical systems (reflecting and refracting telescopes, parallel prisms, the eye etc) and to construct their own. This is my first attempt at using Unity and the first app that I have released on the Microsoft Store. It is very specifically designed as an educational tool for use by Secondary school Physics teachers and students. The next in the series (Mechanics Lab) will be released soon.

    It can be downloaded (for free, with no ads) from the Microsoft Store at:

    I have also created a GitHub pages site for basic tutorials on the use of the software at:

    I am keen to continue updating the software and any ideas on potential additions are appreciated.
