13 June 2019
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
This workshop will recap on the basic properties of waves, both mechanical and electromagnetic and the there will be both demonstration and hands-on activities which are designed to make these enjoyable as well as understandable for pupils using some reasonably inexpensive and easily obtainable bits of kit. The session will discuss misconceptions, look at activities to use in a teaching approach and discuss ways to assess students understanding of this topic.

The session is led by Dan Crittenden, an IOP Teaching and Learning Coach based at Saffron Walden County High School. Light refreshments will be available upon arrival.
