Physics Instructional Resources Lab
@ MIT Physics

The Physics Instructional Resources Lab (PIRL), formerly known as the Technical Services Group (TSG), is part of the Physics Education Group (PEG) at MIT's Department of Physics. We provide technical and teaching support for undergraduate courses at MIT. Our many rooms of physics demos, accumulated over the past century, display subtle physics concepts ranging from electromagnetism to kinematics to optics. The undergraduate physics courses at MIT include lecture courses, as well as the Technology Enabled Active Learning (TEAL) studio classroom courses. We provide support for most variants of 8.01, 8.02 and 8.03 in the form of:

Additionally we occasionally provide some of the above services for departmental open houses, graduations and other special events.
