My Students

My students are dedicated learners. It is a diverse group and they enjoy work in groups. Labs and lab activities are highly appreciated. Learning with hands-on activities to visualize complicated concept is a very helpful approach.

Majority of the students are very motivated to learn and ready for a challenge.

They choose to be in the rigorous class and put a lot of effort to succeed. They are always looking for the ways to understand the material rather than memorize facts. It is truly amazing group of students.

My Project

Physics concepts may be very challenging. It is very helpful to have opportunity to do hands-on activities to visualize how things work. Electricity brings energy in our houses and one of the important topics in physics.

Performing electricity and electrostatics labs students will deepen their understanding and enhance critical thinking.

Charges and current are something that you cannot see but they are in our lives. The labs will help the students to see the interaction of the charges and how charges flow in the different circuit setups. The knowledge they gain will prepare them for more complicated concepts in the future.
