I teach two sections of physics to 11th and 12th graders at a small charter school in San Francisco. My goal for this year is to allow for physics students to engage in an inquiry-based physics curriculum so that they can form their own understandings of physics concepts. There are many supplies that allow students to engage in scientific inquiry. One unit of study in my physics class involves electricity. Hand-held generators are a great tool for students to engage in inquiry around how charges move and the "cost" of electricity. Moving charges can be a difficult concept for students as there are many misconceptions students hold about how charges move. The hand-held generators also provide a way to have a conversation about the cost of electricity and how energy can be converted from one form to another. This hands-on experience would provide a basis for understanding how energy can be converted from one form to another and could also be utilized in a unit of study on energy forms. The hand-held generators would allow students to experience the fun in physics while learning simultaneously!
