The demonstrations available at the Idaho State University's Physics department are classified according to the scheme suggested by PIRA, the Physics Instructional Resource Association. For more information about PIRA, look at the PIRA home page. A complete list of demonstrations, along with a brief description of each demonstration, including references, can be found in the demonstration bibliography.

Demonstrations are continually being developed and acquired, and these pages contain the most up-to-date list available. Please note that demonstrations are not necessarily confined to the list: if you have an idea for a good demonstration it may be possible to acquire and/or build the apparatus required.

Note: Pages are under construction and many links may be broken for the moment.
