This guide includes our picks for your IB Physics classroom. Use this recommendation as a starting point to enhance your curriculum with hands-on science.

Getting Started

Number of Student Groups

Each student group should have at least one device (computer, Chromebook, iPad, etc) to collect and analyze data. We use this number to recommend item quantities.

Your Budget (Optional)

If you choose to provide your budget, we will calculate how much you have left so you can add or remove items.
