Hi Keith,=20

We have custom built cases made by our university facilites people.They
came out very well with a lot of close involvement on our part and a
welder skilled at large fabrications. See

All,

=20

We have for the most part moved into our new building. Classes are
still running in the old building as well as the demonstrations room
because the classes in the new building were not ready in time. I am
moving demonstrations throughout the semester to the new building with
the big/final move happening over winter break.

=20

Anyway, in our new building, we have a large room we have dubbed the
sports bar. Two flat screen tv's in different corners for showing
physics videos. Lots of couches and tables for the students and has a 3
story high ceiling. A hallway passes along one side and has three
recessed areas which are begging for display cabinets. I have talked
about this with our chair and he is on board. We have a few challenges,
the biggest being electrical access to the areas, but I will tackle that
when the time is right.

=20

My question to you is, do you have display cabinets in your department
to show demo and/or lab experiments behind a locked glass case? If so,
did you design them or buy them. I'm sure we will have to design and
build to fit the custom area. I know at Appalachian State (yes the
wonderful school that knocked off Michigan) when I was a student has
great cabinets that were at least 3 meters long with locking cabinets
below to store power supplies, locking glass above to hold the exhibit
and buttons to allow the students to interact with the experiment.

=20

I want something similar and that is my challenge.

=20

Also, if you have one or more of these cabinets but no suggestions on
how I can make them happen here, what types of demos/labs do you show in
them. I'm trying to remember what we showed at Appstate, but I'm kind
of stuck on diffraction tubes, polarization and such.

=20

Any ideas to get my creative juices flowing even more are greatly
appreciated. I love my job.
