This resource is part of a Physics Front Topical Unit.

Topic: Digital Collections: Physics and Physical Science
Unit Title: Online Resource Collections

This website offers lesson plans on more than 70 demonstrations for use in introductory physics classrooms.  All demos have been fully tested in the classroom and were selected for inclusion because they are enjoyable, thought- provoking, and require minimal set-up.  Historical anecdotes and commentary add to the depth of this unique resource.
