What student - or teacher - can resist the chance to experiment with Rocket Launchers, Drinking Birds, Dropper Poppers, Boomwhackers, Flying Pigs and more? The 54 experiments in Using Physics Gadgets and Gizmos, Grades 9-12, encourage your secondary school students to explore a variety of phenomena involved with pressure and force, thermodynamics, energy, light and colour, resonance, buoyancy, two-dimensional motion, angular momentum, magnetism and electromagnetic induction.
The phenomenon-based learning (PBL) approach used by the authors is as educational as the experiments are attention-grabbing. Instead of putting the theory before the application, PBL encourages students to first experience how the gadgets work and then grow curious enough to find out why. Students engage in the activities not as a task to be completed but as exploration and discovery.
