My students need lasers, magnets, prisms, diffraction gratings, and a spectroscope to build their understanding of light, electricity, and magnetism this year!
The students in all my classes are from the inner-city of Washington, DC. The students are invested in their community and topics that directly affect their lives. My students want to know why science and engineering are the skills that they need to use to apply in their everyday lives.
My students ask great questions about common everyday phenomena while explicitly wondering why they occur.
They are not afraid to state their criticism, which is why I think it is critical that they receive the best resources to support their claims. I think that with more support, they will become the budding scientists that they already are.
My students love physics! They just don't know it yet!
I want to introduce physics in a hands-on way that requires equipment that will peak their interest in topics they have wanted to learn more about: building a speaker, understanding light, and analyzing heat absorption of metal.
The materials that will be used for these projects would be the lightbox, that would be used to understand overlapping colors, ball and ring apparatus which would be used for a thermal expansion activity/demo, magnet pairs would be used for an electromagnetism lab activity, diffraction gratings for students to analyze different spectra of various elements, lasers to study how light goes through various media.
Previous years, my students enjoyed these topics and requested more hands-on labs and I want to give an opportunity to them to learn more outside the standard powerpoint presentation or worksheet assignments. Science is all about play and exploration. I want to bring back the idea of exploring light with lasers, lenses, and power sources. If there is anything that I want my students to walk out with is the memories and skills from my physics class; not simply memorization.
