|Abstract: ||Experimental work has been taking a great importance in Science curricula in several countries. This fact is now changing the conception of the role of the laboratory
in the classroom. This role no longer seen as an instrument to illustrate or confirm some concepts but became the essential place of the learning process in Science.
However, the implementation of several experimental procedures frequently faces
equipment limitations, whether because those indicated in textbooks do not exist in
schools due to prohibitive costs for most school budgets, or because their use is far too complex to be done by students.
In this dissertation, a few examples of experimental equipment, made with day-today
supplies is analyzed, as well as those that can be acquired at low prices and might
have high positive effect in the Science learning process.
We also discuss some relevant equipment in the teaching of Physics that can be
created by teachers and students in schools, as part of curricular or non curricular
subject areas such as “Área de Projecto” in the twelfth grade. These equipments, easy to
conceive and produce with reasonable costs resources, when compared to the commercial equipment, which are much more expensive, presents very good experimental results.|
