There are no safety concerns with this experiment. Participants should bring a lab notebook. A desktop computer will be provided for data collection and analysis, but a personal laptop computer would also be useful.
Host and Mentor:
David McCowan completed his B.S. in 2007 at Ohio University, then continued at the University of Chicago where he received an M.S. in 2008 and a Ph.D. in 2014 based on research in liquid-to-glass transition theory. Since 2015, he has been an Assistant in the Instructional Laboratories of the Department of Physics at the University of Chicago developing, maintaining, and implementing introductory and advanced experiments for both undergraduate and graduate students. During this time, David has worked with his colleagues on several projects including incorporating python scripting into the advanced labs curriculum, developing an online wiki of the lab manual and supplementary material, and revamping the graduate experimental lab course structure.
