Summary:
"Over fifty extended projects are described in detail, at various levels of sophistication, aimed at both the advanced high school, as well as first- and second-year undergraduate physics students, and their instructors. Carrying out these projects may take anything from a few days to several weeks, and in some case, months. Each project description starts with a summary of theoretical background, proceeds to  Read more...
