Dear UMD Physics Faculty: Welcome to Spring 2019! We look forward to assisting you with your demonstration needs this semester and helping you to make your classes exciting and interactive.
As we prepare for the fall semester, please remember we do need adequate time to prepare your demonstrations and ensure there are no conflicts between orders. For morning classes, please have orders in before 1:00 PM of the previous working day; for afternoon classes, before 4:00 AM the day of the class. If your class is outside the John S. Toll Physics Building, please get in touch with us one to two days in advance if possible so we can make arrangements for the materials to be packed so you or your TA can pick them up and return them in PHY0402.
We are happy to work with you to ensure that you have everything you need. We're all looking forward to an exciting new semester!
