Successful NPTW Workshop


It was another productive Saturday yesterday at the New Physics Teacher Workshop, a workshop created by the Southern California chapter of the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT)! This workshop took place at Trash for Teaching in Gardena, CA, but we are hoping to expand our workshops to San Diego and Orange County in the future. 

On Saturday, December 7, 2013, the workshop was a wonderful success with almost thirty participants. In the morning, these new physics teachers observed lectures and demos to learn about topics including:

  •  Circuits, Resistors, and Ohm’s Law 
  • Magnets, Electromagnets, and Lenz’s Law
  • Parallel Series: Ammeters/Voltmeters

In the afternoon, participants engaged in lab activities that they can bring back to their classrooms to create an interactive, hands-on environment.

 Labs included: 

  • Using Your Plasma Globe: Ampere’s Law
  •  Circuits Labs and Static Electricity and Static Tape
  • Van de Graaf generator
  • Using your Multimeter
     
     After this workshop, teachers were more comfortable with physics lab equipment. They also took home awesome science goodie bags that would allow them to create demos such as the Play-Doh resistivity demo. 



Xump donated these stylish bags to hold gifts for our participants,
such as D batteries, Play-Doh, Cartoon Guide to Physics, and more!


 
    Thank you to everyone who made this workshop successful, including the workshop leaders, sponsors, and participants!
