1. Show students the attached pdf showing a schematic of the Stern Gerlach experiment in a foreign language
  2. ask students to use their small white boards and identify what each part of the experiment is
  3. ask why things are represented as they are (the magnet, for example, explicitly shows that it is inhomogeneous – and two collimators are more realistic than one to produce a good atomic beam out of an oven, all of the above has good opportunity to discuss actual experimental design)
