Special Parts Kit
A kit containing custom-made wooden jigs and five metal samples used in Physical Science
This kit contains three custom-made wooden jigs and metal samples specifically designed for use with experiments for Physical Science.
It is wonderful for teachers and students to construct these simple items themselves as part of the experiment, imitating the methods of scientists historically who frequently had to construct apparatus to carry out their experiments. Schematics for making these widgets are included on the Digital Resources. However, we recognize that many do not have time or resources so we make them available to you.
