(Why) We Love Physics (Teaching)
100 not out! Thomas and Robin salute the balcony with a good old-fashioned ramble about what excites them about physics teaching, making the subject live if you’re not a specialist and the challenges of teaching science in a ‘post-truth’ world.
We go round ALL the houses, and talk about where our love from physics comes from, but we’ve distilled out the most eclectic links list we have ever produced! Here it is…
- 13 Minutes to the Moon
- NASA – the Apollo Programme
- The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum
- Quantum Tunnelling
- Behind the Curve – Netflix Flat Earth documentary
- How Science Works – STEM Learning
- Evolution is a Blind Watchmaker – YouTube
- More or Less – BBC
- The Royal Statistical Society
- Modelling half life with dice
- Spurious Correlations
