We have developed several new experiments and modified existing ones in mechanics, waves, as well as electricity and magnetism with the intention of making the learning of physics fun and effective, within the constraints imposed by the current junior college curriculum (grades 11 to 12). Although the computer is incorporated in measurements, the emphasis is on hands-on and minds-on activities. Easily available inexpensive materials are used whenever possible. The strengths of each of the experiments are highlighted, with special emphasis on two of the experiments that were tried out in junior colleges and workshops for in-service teachers this year. Students’ and teachers’ feedback is reported and analysed, and improvements to the experiments are presented.
This paper was presented at the International Science Education Conference (ISEC) 2006, held in Singapore from 22 - 24 Nov 2006.
