In this workshop we will present our newest physics demonstration products, including: A state-of-the-art wine glass breaker that works every time, with only 75W of total amplifier power. A powerful bar-graph measurement and display system, with 10 plug-and-play sensors, that performs over 25 separate demonstrations with unparalleled impact and clarity. An ultrabright point-source LED strobe for shadow projection of SHM oscillations. A collapsible smoke ring cannon that eliminates storage issues. An extremely versatile color mixer that demonstrates both additive and subtractive color mixing in striking new ways. A siren in a vacuum that clearly shows the effects of a vacuum on both sound and electromagnetic wave transmission. If your physics demonstration collection could use a boost, come to the QED workshop and find out just how effective and fun demonstrations can be!
