Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not enough components The description says that there are enough materials for 32 students. However, this is only true if 1/2 of your class is performing one part of the lab while the other 1/2 of the class is performing a completely different lab. These labs take a lot of explanation to the students. It is almost impossible for them to read the lab and figure out what to do on their own. Therefore having two different labs going at the same time makes it difficult to manage. I have increased the size of my groups so that all of the students can perform one part of the lab at the same time. However, this decreases hands-on experiences. The other problem is the durability of the materials. The motion cars (Hall's carriages) all had at least one broken wheel by the end of the 1st year of use. One of the weight hangers also broke, and to perform the lever part of the lab all of the hangers must be of equal mass. I would love to be able to order extra replacement parts or parts to make-up more lab groups.
