Physics experiments with low cost materials

I recently met a young teacher who has written a paper on simple experiments that are using only cheap materials, available in every supermarket. I try to convince her to give this for free use to our project.--White Eagle 07:51, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

That sounds great.
Unfortunately she has sold the rights to a publisher. She expects the release of the work in Sep. 2011, eg in 3 years.--White Eagle 07:04, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Hands-on physics teaching

I am right now trying to acquire a book "Hands-on physics teaching", which is rather expensive. So getting a similar one "free" would be a great boost.By vkizza

Hi Vincent, this book sound interesting, I've read the abstract in Amazon. But - it is American, and I'm doubtful if these experiments can be as easily performed in Uganda. But if you think it is useful for our Center, buy it. It can be financed by the startup funding we have.
From what they describe in the preface,it is like they use plenty of common materials....baloons,strings,paper e.t.c so i think acquiring it will be a real boost.Thanks.--Vkizza 18:51, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
So go for it. I imagine most Ugandan schools not having the resources to acquire expensive lab materials, but balloons and strings should be within the reach of everyone. (See my initiative in point 1).
