Physics 420 – Physics Demonstration

The Physics 420 class is a one term physics demonstrations course. Each student is expected to design and build a demonstration dealing with physics or astronomy, and present it in class and afterword at least twice in a school. The projects are aimed at elementary and secondary students. The students are expected to work independently in the Outreach lab (HEBB 212). We have a weekly two-hour class meeting every Tuesday in Term 1.
