Physics from Home

Director of STEM Education Kristine Varney’s Physics students have been doing some great projects, even though they may be “out of the lab.”
They are studying charges and doing experiments with materials readily available around the house. The project for their current unit is to make a video of a static electricity "magic trick" with an explanation of how it works.
