Here you will find information about many of the lecture demonstrations that are available for the physics courses at Northwestern.

Click on the topic to get a menu of demonstrations in that catagory.  By clicking on a demonstation, you will go to a page describing that demonstration.   The DCS# is the Demonstration Classification Scheme number set up by the Physics Instructional Resource Association (PIRA) of the Americian Association of Physics Teachers.  Google the number to see how other physics departments describe and use the demonstration.

We strongly recommend that you practise the demonstration before presenting it to your classes.  It is also wise to let us know a day ahead which demonstrations you would like to use so it can be set up for your use.
