TAP-L

TAP-L is a listserv created for the purpose of discussing various topics related to Teaching Apparatus (TAP) (meaning demo or lab equipment). It is housed at North Carolina State University and is primarily, but not exclusively, for the college physics settings. The people who usually subscribe to TAP-L are professionals who engage at various times in designing, purchasing, setting up, organizing, creating, performing and cleaning up after various demonstrations of physical phenomena.

This includes the messages from when TAP-L was hosted by Appalachian State.

PIRA wishes to extend our many thanks to Andrew Graham.

Andy created TAP-L and hosted it for many years at Appalachian State University.

Thank you for this wonderful resource.
