The Technical Services Group (TSG) at MIT's Department of Physics provides teaching and technical support for undergraduate courses at the school. They are the stewards of many rooms of physics demonstrations that cover kinematics, optics, and dozens of other topics. A good place to start on this website is with a visit to the "Random Cool Demonstration!" section found on the middle of the homepage. Here visitors will find one of the dozens of physics demonstrations available here, such as "Forces of Current," which shows a wire in a magnetic field. On the left-hand of the site, visitors will find the "Demonstrations by category" listings, along with a search engine. The filter options on the search engine include "Cool Demonstrations," "Contains Video," and "Recommended for the classroom." The categories include "Electrostatics," "Dynamics," and "Color."
