Constructing Inexpensive Science Teaching Equipment

Inexpensive Science Teaching Equipment Project
University of Maryland, College Park

I want to thank Chris Johnson and Ron Bonnstetter, and their colleagues at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, for putting the plans from our three books on Improvising Science Teaching Equipment Worldwide (IS-2 Project) onto the WWW. This should have been done by us earlier since we have had so many requests for non-existing copies and for us to do more reprinting. Loaning out our few copies for others to copy has been a real problem. Since these books were written at the request of USAID, NSF and UNESCO to make "hands-on" science more available around the world, this website will make this goal more easily attainable. We sincerly hope you will find these plans practical for your use of low-cost materials to get your science students into real laboratory situations. Your reactions, and experiences, would be appreciated.
