Subject: Re: Article concerning Demos...

Post:

I should clarify, the what was developed here was Interactive Lecture
Demonstrations by David Sokoloff. University of Maryland's PER group
also developed stets of ILDs that David collaborated with in the
Physics Suite.

I have found one other article. AJP 64 January 1996 by R Di Stefano
I will read. Preliminary IUPP results: Student reactions to in-
class demonstrations to the presentation of current themes.

SO Anything else on Physics Demo Shows, or perhaps a more general,
Science Shows? Perhaps a Science Center or museum has put something
out.
