This wiki serves as a repository of laboratory experiments suitable for undergraduate use. If you are an instructor, you may request full access to the site, allowing you to edit experiments or add your own, and view instructor-only material. Just send an email to the wiki administrator, Scott McIndoe, and he'll be pleased to add you. Joining PBWorks automatically generates a week's worth of "how-to" emails, if you're unfamiliar with the wiki format.
