Our Newest Labs, Activities & CoolStuff
Fun and engaging activities using the Energy Stick
Welcome to our March 2015 Issue of our CoolStuff Newsletter. This month, we are featuring a simple, safe and Cool device called an Energy Stick. Physics teacher James Lincoln demonstrates several experiments that help students understand the principles of electric current and light. James has authored many of our past CoolStuff Newsletters, and teachers [...]
Liquid Crystal Sheet Demos10 thermal conductivity demos for less than $12 Watch Physics Teacher James Lincoln use the simple, inexpensive Liquid Crystal Sheet to visually demonstrate: -the temperatures of varying light sources -how styrofoam insulation works -the wavelength of a microwave -plus much more!
See Energy Transformation with a thermal camera or steel spheresCheck out how MLB can use a thermal energy camera to determine whether a hit ball is foul or live. Then watch Dr. Baseball use the more budget friendly colliding steel spheres to create some thermal energy of his own.
The Blue-Violet Laser
The wavelength you've been missing!
Take a look at the new blue-violet Laser, which produces wavelengths at 405 nm. Sure, it is a different color and that is always cool, but why use this over any other Laser?
