Finding A Lab Kit

  1. Sep 19, 2006 #1
    WHere can I find a lab kit? One that lets you do experiments. I know they have them for kids, what about adults?

    I've seen kits for Chemistry and Biology but what about Physics? I can see Mechanical Physics but how can you do projects in Particle Physics without a Cyclotron?

    I don't know if this is what you mean, but I remember seeing an article on how to build your own cloud chamber on the cheap. I'm pretty sure that it was in the Amateur Scientist column of SciAm. A back-issue search might turn it up. Where you would get your particles is another matter.

    Go to the myth busters site, they did a couple that you can make out of cheap materials.

    Take care,
