    If so, build a fun 'Physics' Gun from a few bits of hardware!

    Bits lying around the Lab. Unwind an old motor if you need wire!

    If you're that bored, why not skip the old stuff and go straight to the Class IV CO2 Laser. Guaranteed to keep the fire department, local police and parents in a foaming frenzy:


    Or if you're ambitious, try the ruby rod laser- hand held and operates on 8 "D" batteries

    take that one in for science class :wink:

    Of course! If you want to try to interest the students in Physics classes you have to make it exciting (to the non-physicist types anyway).
