I have a bunch of disks.  Some are used for interfacing a IIe with external
sensors and graphing the results, some describe various concepts graphically.
The ones I use the most was one that shows waves, intereference, Doppler
effect, etc.  Another does a fair description of how electrons interact with
light, particle motion of gases, gas laws (for chemistry).  There is a lot 
of info on how to use the game port for interfacing.  Unforch the info is
a little spread out in the basement.  I even have (somewhere) a gizmo that
will measure your heart rate by using an LED and phototransistor connected
to the game port.  Pretty neat for an old machine.
