What is this session about
Scientifically rigorous experiments at home
How could we do quantitative school science experiments at home with commonly available material?
Connect everyday phenomena to school Physics
Can we recognise and appreciate Physics phenomena at home? Can we pedagogize these, i.e. connect them to formal Physics?
What do we discuss in this session:
- Home experiments on refraction
- Measuring the purity and potability of tap water
- Factors to consider regarding the effectiveness of simulations
