Abstract—Self-created experiments are experiments that are created mainly by hand from raw materials, devices, and common components in daily life and used in the teaching process. Using self-created experiments in teaching will give students more opportunities to participate in learning activities. Therefore, it is not only a means to organize students’ cognitive activities but also contributes to fostering students’ practical ability in teaching physics in high school, because through creating and using experiments students have the opportunity to make their suggestions, tool making, assemble, conduct experiments… with a positive spirit, proactive, and creative. Besides that, the use of self-created experiments also helps students deepen their knowledge, and practice skills thereby contributing to fostering qualities and other competencies in teaching physics. In this paper, we propose the process of building and using self-created experiments, then proceed to self-create some experiments Chapter “Magnetism and electromagnetic induction” Physics 12 High School of Lao PDR and used in teaching to develop students’ practical capacity.
