Subject: Demonstrations Resources

Post:

I'm gathering up a list of demonstrations resources for a project and am
looking for any items you all think would be valuable for high school
physics teachers. I can post the list on the PIRA website when I'm done,
too.

So, if you had to recommend a book, video or CD, what would it be? Where
can it be purchased?
