Physics Lab Toolbox - Collisions Lab Public

This IQP aimed to discover methods to improve physics lab experiments by taking an existing collisions lab and modifying it to make it more engaging and educational for the students. A new web page-based instructions template was developed to achieve this, complete with extra content panels that address software and physics concept issues. Along the way, issues with Logger Pro, the software used to conduct labs, were identified and compensated for. Surveys were administered to determine whether or not this approach succeeded, and a preliminary data analysis indicated that it did. This data can be used for further research, or inspire new phases of research to make more conclusions.
