The Spinning Sparkler (340)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

About 30 experiments Physics for ages 11-19 will be demonstrated including spinning sparklers and jellies, seasons cylinders, a disappearing test tube, male and female balancing, a toothbrush wave machine, a wolf whistling rodent,a light sabre with a plasma globe and a simulated sunset!

We will also have a closer look at the real Physics behing two favourite experiments: (i) a card and an inverted glass of water (ii) pulling two interleaved books apart

There will be lots of audience participation and many ideas to help your physics teaching.

Copies of the 'New Resourceful Physics Teacher' will be available at a reduced price.

I will also bring some USB versions of: (i) the schoolphysics website and (ii) my Physics Topic summaries covering both GCSE and A level Physics
