What to do when it's late at night and your high schooler says his table wasn't able to complete their physics lab today because they were missing equipment, and the teacher said, maybe half jokingly, that they could complete the lab at home if they didn't finish it in class? That's right, you build experimental equipment in your garage.
This is the Interial Balance we built from scratch using two hacksaw blades. It took about about 20 minutes to build and then another 10 to actually run the experiment.
I hope we don't have to "junkyard wars" all of his labs, but this was fun and quick to build.
