Why oh why are we doing this?
We believe that physics teaching is a wonderful thing, but are aware not everyone agrees. In the UK more and more non-specialists are getting the opportunity (welcome or otherwise) to shine a light on peoples misconceptions about the World around them. We also know that about half of schools in the UK have between zero and one physics teachers; teachers with nobody they can chat to about the subject they love.
We started this podcast to provide that “physics chat” and to give (hopefully) useful information about how some of the best physics teachers we know teach the subject. Nearly always the answer will be ‘do some practical work’, which we know is essential to grounding understanding as well as being fun to do and making lessons easier to manage.
If you have found this page then we are truly amazed, and hope you will stay with us on our journey. If you are a Science teacher who would like to share your love of Physics teaching with the World, please contact us using the form below.
