Workshop Leader: Kofi Donnelly, Head of Science, The Heschel School, NY, NY
Workshop Title: Models of Light
General Description: This workshop will focus on building, testing and applying the particle, wave, and photon models for light. Participants will work through two or more of the key experiments in “student mode” and discuss them in “teacher mode.” Experiments under consideration include the pinhole camera, the double slit experiment, and the photoelectric effect. We are planning to use both “real world” apparatus and selected simulations.
Who Should Attend:
Middle, high school, and university teachers, and prospective teachers, of physics and physical science. Teachers of biology and other sciences, as well as elementary teachers, also may find this workshop useful.
