We will have our first meeting of the new school year on upcoming Saturday, September 20, at 10:00 AM in room 218 at Dana Research Center, Northeastern University. It will be a very important meeting (see agenda) so please make sure to attend.
We are planning to make an inventory of the existing demo equipment and decide if we want to order Cavendish experiment, http://www.pasco.com/prodCatalog/AP/AP-8215_gravitational-torsion-balance/index.cfm . If I remember well, there was a problem with the power supply for Millikan electron charge experiment, so whoever has it, please bring it to the meeting and we will send it to Pasco for repairs.
