With the arrival of the new Stage 6 Physics Syllabus, we have created a course, Experiments for the New Physics Stage 6 Syllabus, to empower Stage 6 physics teachers with providing their students with novel hands-on experiences and experiments to engage them in their study of physics. The activities incorporated will cover experiments for the new content in the new syllabus, particularly Thermodynamics, Waves and Electric Circuits, and look at learning opportunities in the Depth Studies.
This course best done in conjunction with Unpacking the New Physics Stage 6 Syllabus.
