Electric Play-Doh Fields, Flying Pigs and Jello Refraction - Physics Labs that Work

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There are many lab experiences mandated in the Alberta Physics 20-30 Program of Studies, 2007. These experiences do not need to use expensive equipment and do not need to involve intricate procedures. The goal of this session is to provide teachers with some new ideas for exploring electric fields, optics and circular motion in their physics classroom. Participants will also be engaged in a discussion regarding the implementation of an open-ended approach and how it enhances student learning.

I am excited about helping students be successful learners. As teacher-in-residence at the Perimeter Institute I get to work with teachers which helps students. Scientific thinking is needed now more than ever as humans face increasingly complex systems and challenges.
