Solutions | Knovation Your digital transformation presents exciting opportunities. With them, come challenges – including the uncertainty around providing high-quality, rigorous online resources to support your teachers and students. How do you ensure your teachers are using reliable, standards-aligned online resources so students can truly benefit from your district’s digital transformation? Our Solutions Harvard Natural Sciences Lecture Demonstrations This website is an ongoing project to create a comprehensive library of physics demonstrations, simulations, videos, and other useful resources available at the Harvard Science Center. Having evolved from "The Demonstrative Physicist's Companion," a handbook begun in 1990 by W. Rueckner and S. Steel, this website goes far beyond a compilation of all the demonstrations in our current repertoire. Included in the table of contents at the left are twelve topic sections relating to particular areas of physics, chemistry, and math. Each topic section is further divided into sub-sections in which the demonstrations are listed. It is our intention to make this site as useful as possible.
