This Interactive Qualifying Project sought to introduce educational resources targeting the struggles of experimental physicists as a way of enriching the curriculum of mid-level History of Science courses. We extensively researched historical teaching materials in physics education as well as primary source materials in experimental physics to determine specific areas that would have the greatest impact on student learning and be least likely to overlap existing student knowledge. The materials we developed were tested in HI 2354, History of the Physical Sciences, in C Term 2011.
