ICE Devices: Constructing Inexpensive Classroom & Lab Tools

ICE Devices contains instructions for building 10 science teaching tools as well as background information about soldering; all are low cost and made with easy-to-find materials. With ICE Devices students can learn from making a device as well as by using it to demonstrate a chemical principle. For example, the BB Board can be used to demonstrate annealing, hardening, and tempering of metals; the neon lamp cord demonstrates the chemistry of vision; the chromatography simulator illustrates size-exclusion column chromatography. Each of the 10 devices is available separately for download. Available online only.
