Text Box:  STEM DAY AGGIE HOMECOMING: activities demonstrate principles of physics in common everyday experience. For example sports, ligh and acoustics.  In order to develop a diverse set of activities, we plan to collaborate with similar activities in the country and around the world.


Core modules

Colors are Everywhere: This module deals with  the origin of color, and how color forms as light from a source pass through a devise such as prism. The module is designed to fit all classes including high schools. The topics include identifying colors in the rainbow, manipulation of shapes, fraction, optical devices, energy and the sun.

Electrostatics:  This module contains documentation and activities that will be used at any grade level. It will be accompanied with demo and hands on activities that will involve generation and transport of charge. We will use the Van De Graff Generator as a center piece for electrostatics

Electromagnetism: This module contains documents about electricity and magnetism and the relationship between the two. Students will design their own circuits and electromagnets.  We will use a variety of electromagnetic devices to measure electrical quantities such as current, voltage power. Students learn the principles of electromagnetism, we will also  introduce the magnetic field of the earth by introducing the function of a compass.

Mechanics: This module contains documents and activities about kinematics, dynamics, energy and momentum transfer.  The demos include rotational motion, bouncing balls, motion and motion detectors etc. We will add projectile motion, rocket design, and space flight

State of Matter: This module contains documents and activities on state of matter. We will use liquid nitrogen to demonstrate change of phase. We will also go further to demonstrate superconductivity and its interaction with magnetic field.
