A Gimmicky Demo Fan
Robin and Thomas meet John Hudson, a self confessed gimmick demo fan who also makes pdf interactives.
- Young Modulus Interactive (in TES resources)
- Thomas’s oscilloscope Screen Shot Simulator
- Millfield Physics on Twitter (John’s department page)
- An example of conservation of angular momentum from MIT
- The chain fountain explained in this Royal Society video
- Grand Illusions YouTube Channel and where to get Talking Tapes
Wall-to-wall gimmicky demos on this week’s podcast as we welcome John Hudson. Although we call them gimmicky, nothing could be farther from the truth: John introduces us to some great experiments and demos that are crammed full of physics to inspire and talk about.
Don’t forget, if you are looking for resources, there are loads on the TES website, so why not take a look, or even better: share a resource that you are proud of so that others can benefit.
Please share ideas or successes – or indeed questions – on our Facebook Page: https://fb.me/physicstp . You can also message us via our website contact form at the.physicsteachingpodcast.com, Twitter @physicstp, email using the address given in the podcast (if we remember), you could even email us an autio file if you are feeling really keen.
