What is your advice about? Engaging students in physics

  1. Be enthusiastic. If they can’t see that YOU love your subject why would they?
  2. Go beyond the scheme, link to higher level interesting science topics.
  3. Do as many hands on activities as possible. From making an electromagnet to simulating a telescope, it’ll get them hooked!
  4. Try to incorporate the idea of scientific procedure, how discoveries are made and believed. Students will gain a broader understand of the scientific community.
  5. Practice makes perfect. Whether it’s learning equations, doing arithamitic, learning laws, repettitive, fun games with an element of competition ALWAYS go down well!
