I like this company. I just ordered three constant velocity cars out of my own pocket. The school will hopefully reimburse me, but money is tight right now. Prices are very reasonable and their stuff look so good. I’m really itching to get the Simple Holograph Kit next year. I can just imagine how excited my students would get over something like this.
I’m impressed with the gear, but I’m even more impressed with the resources on the site. There are all kinds of lesson plans and lab ideas. I’m going to be stealing from them frequently, you should too. Then tell me what you liked and how you changed it.
Under “Categories” on your left, click on “Arbor Labs” to get at their lesson plans. There is also a “Coolstuff Newsletter” with lots of labs and activities. I had been talking about doing an egg drop but didn’t have any place. They mentioned that you can arrange for the local fire department to bring a ladder truck and do the drops for you. I never thought of that, but I’m going to make some phone calls and find out.
