Title:
Connecting Science To The Real World And The Real World To Science
Topic:
More inexpensive and easy physics demonstrations for junior and senior high school.
Summary:
In this session, I will show several physics demonstrations. I will discuss strengths and weaknesses of the demonstrations as well as strategies for getting students to develop a true understanding of the science that underlies them. Note that these demos are different than the ones I showed last year.
Biography:
Barry Edgar retired from teaching after forty years (mainly physics, science, and math) with Edmonton Public Schools. His classes always had a strong lab component, which he feels develops critical thinking skills and makes the classes more enjoyable.
