Laboratories & Classrooms For High School Physics.
Palmer, R. Ronald; Rice, William Maxwell
Information and recommendations are presented to assist school planners in designing facilities for physics. Emphasis is given to design features related to the conduct of laboratory experiments by students, television teaching of physics, new physics courses, classroom demonstrations, equipment storage and preparation areas, and combined classroom-laboratory facilities. Factors such as location, size, shape, utilities, and flexibility are considered in relation to preparing functional specifications for space to be used by physics classes. Some examples of high school physics rooms are included along with schematics and photographs. (FS)
