More inexpensive and easy physics demonstrations for junior and senior high school. 
Summary:In this session, I will show several physics demonstrations. I will discuss strengths and weaknesses of the demonstrations as well as strategies for getting students to develop a true understanding of the science that underlies them. Note that these demos are different than the ones I showed last year.

Barry Edgar retired from teaching after forty years (mainly physics, science, and math) with Edmonton Public Schools. His classes always had a strong lab component, which he feels develops critical thinking skills and makes the classes more enjoyable.
