The purpose of this report is to present plans and directions for laboratory apparatus, which may be built, by the instructor and pupils themselves from inexpensive materials. The report describes projects undertaken in approaching this problem in a particular school. It is not a complete laboratory manual. The equipment is not all that would be needed either in a course in general science or in physics. It is assumed that some laboratory supplies other than those made by pupils must be purchased, but many simple pieces of apparatus may be built in the classroom by the pupils with great economy. Every article described has been actually built by a science teacher and his pupils, and successfully used in the school situation described.
