See the ALPhA Laboratory Immersions wiki page for more information about these and past experiments.
The Jonathan F. Reichert Foundation has established a grant program to help purchase apparatus used in Laboratory Immersions. Limitations and exclusions apply, but generally speaking the foundation may support up to 40% of the cost of the required equipment. Preference will be given to ALPhA members in good standing. See the Reichert Foundation website for more information.
