This is great! A perfect tool for demonstrating physics activities for students. There are so many different topics to show examples for, its fantastic.

Very cool website for physics teachers. Low cost science experiments are hard to come by, but these are just that and get the job done.

So many different configurations are possible given that there are multiple links to demonstrations for the same topic.  Some are purely electronic visualizations, but some actually give materials and methods for you to replicate in class. Sample worksheets/lab data reports are available for the demonstrations which makes it easy if you're in a rush.

I am sure all physics teacher knew about this site.  With teaching science to young children it is easier to get the point across with deomonstrations and live experiments instead of just talking about it.  To some students the distractions that occur during these experiments amy be too much for and the principles behind the experiments are lost.  But these all seem too apply a lot of background on the information of the experiment taking place.
