Welcome to Harvard Physics's instructional lab!

Our mission is to support student learning in the processes of scientific investigation. The process of doing science involves creating and using models to predict and explain measurements of physical quantities. As a group of teaching professionals working in the laboratory, our emphasis is to help students learn to make and interpret measurements, compare data to model predictions, and use the results of their analysis to revise models.
