For my eighth grade physical science class, I'd like to purchase a set of 10 good stopwatches. We need a good timing instrument all the time for labs on motion, velocity, accleration, energy, wave speed, etc. We only have a couple in class so the kids end up using their own watches or sharing but it is not working very well. For being a simple issue, it is a constant problem that interferes with us doing the hands on activities in lab that these eighth grade kids need to be excited about science. We will take good care of them and they can be used for countless labs and year after year. Thanks very much for helping make our program better for the kids.
