Requesting Demos and Demo Information

Demonstrations requests should be submitted 24 hrs in advance.  This is so the Lab Manager has time to set-up and check the working condition of the demo.   Demo requests submitted later than this will be filled if possible, but no guarentees are made!

Submitting a request:

  • Email the Lab Manager with your request. Please include the title of the demo, your class time and date.


  • Phone the Lab Manager at x5532. Again, please include the title of the demo, your class time and date.

Demonstration setup:

Demos for the first lecture of the day will be set up in the lecture room the previous afternoon (friday afternoon for Monday morning demos).  Demos for later lectures will be out and stored on a tabletop in the demo room (101A), but may not be set up.  If you feel you require special "practice", arrangements can be made with the Lab Manager .

Requesting the construction of a new demo:

New demos are always being investigated.  If you have a good idea, let the Lab Manager know and arrange a time to discuss the construction and possible uses.


Wake Forest University demos are being updated online on a continuing basis.  Those demos that are used on a regular basis (i.e. by more than one person) are listed on the web with pictures and videos when available.  Check out our online demos!
