Top Demonstrations Every Physics Teacher Should Have

Every physics teacher knows that students LOVE to watch a good demonstration! This program is for those of you would like to expand your repertoire of demonstrations. Some are classics involving minimal equipment that most of us should have. Others require a bit of construction and assembly, but the results are worth the effort. Physics teacher Michael Dowling will reveal his Top Ten demonstrations at this evening program and provide some advice on doing it with flair. Got a BETTER way to do it? Bring an idea to share! The program should last one hour, but there will be time afterward to check out the items and try it yourself.
