The Special Parts Kit contains three custom-made wooden jigs and five metal samples specifically designed to help with five of the experiments in Novare Physical Science.
It is wonderful for teachers and students to construct these simple items themselves as part of the experiment, imitating the methods of scientists historically who frequently had to construct apparatus to carry out their experiments. Schematics for making these widgets are included on the Digital Resources for Physical Science. However, we recognize that many do not have time or resources, so we also make these available to you fully assembled and ready to use. Each kit contains all of the following:
- Hot Wheels Track Clamp Support Base – used in Experiment 1, Measuring Kinetic Energy
- Double Support Stand with Adjustable Crosspiece (set of two) – used in Experiments 1 and 12, Kinetic Energy and Magnetic Field Strength
- Four Hole Spring Block – used in Experiment 8, Inertia and Force
- Five Metal Samples – used in Experiment 5, Determining Volume, and Experiment 6, Determining Density
Please note that these are no longer available as separate purchases. You may call for more information.
