Classroom Demonstrations

Jump to: navigation, search

The Physlab is constantly developing novel, interesting and exciting demonstrations to be used by physics teachers at the LUMS SSE, other universities in Pakistan as well as for schools and colleges. This is an ongoing project and we will keep on adding information here as the projects and kits build up.
