Shock My Students

My students are in need of 6 Electrophorus units.

I recently became the physics teacher in a high school in suburban South Carolina. Interest in physics has waned in previous years. Students have viewed physics as an esoteric course, having no relevance in their lives. I am attempting to change this mind-set.

The physics' budget was spent on demonstration items. I need items that provide a hands-on experience for the students. I currently have neat visual aids, a few awesome demos, but very little in terms of student-oriented materials.

My students need lab experiences that are more than just reading a meter. An electrophorus is one of the simplest tools a student can use to create a simple electrostatic charge.

Your donation will help my students have a better understanding of electrostatics - by doing simple experiments rather than watching me (or a video).
