Physics apparatus etc?

by deschnell

Hi all, I'm not fortunate enough to be teaching physics this year, but next year it's on the slate.
Wondering what you've used for demos, apparatus, holders, etc?

I built a simple little 2D projectile launcher (not uploaded yet - it had some issues) to launch an air hockey puck.
I've built some chemistry lab-related things (supports, tube holders, etc)

Inclined plane is on my todo list.

Some students made a slide for a ball (rube goldberg contraption).

Would love to collaborate some more.

I'm in Alberta, using the Physics 20 and Physics 30 curriculum (kinematics, dynamics, some rotational dynamics, springs, SHM, waves, optics, nuclear physics, EMR, etc).
