LIPTA SPRING CONFERENCE 8:30AM to noon at Farmingdale HS Early registratione $15, $20 for late registration or at the door. Richard Terwilliger will "Do Some Fun Labs" Participants should come prepared for a fun day as you try your luck completing different hands-on lab activities that are timed. Out of ten possible lab choices you must complete a minimum of four labs that you have hopefully not done previously. These lab exercises will not only give you a direct hands-on experience but will also focus on a specific topic and will reinforce theory that most students have conceptual difficulty understanding and applying. The topics that the different labs cover include; vectors, graphical analysis of motion, centripetal force, reflection, Hooke’s Law, potential energy of springs, the Law of Conservation of Energy, projectile motion and series circuits. There will be a short group dialogue, directly following the completion of the labs, that will discuss the pros and cons of each of the different labs when used with students in a classroom environment. A build-it-yourself standing wave generator workshop will follow this hands on lab session.
