Physics Teaching Kit

Physics Through Experiments

Physics can be dull. Physics can be fascinating, too. Too often teachers do not have the right tools to work with, forcing them to spend endless hours discussing theory instead of applying it. With the Photon Physics Kit, you and your students will enter an entirely new world of experimentation and creativity. Awaken your students’ innate curiosity with the Photon Physics Kit.

What does a typical lesson look like?

The Physics Kit facilitates the teaching of physics in grades 7-8. It includes a collection of original scenarios, accessories, and a special app – designed so that every teacher can conduct experiments “with one click”. The kit allows you to explore the world of physics through unconventional and exciting experiments, increasing engagement and enhancing learning.

Practical teaching aids

During the lesson, students have the opportunity to combine theoretical and practical knowledge. The physical nature of the robot and kit allows for exploring the world of physics through unconventional and exciting experiments, which in turn increases engagement and enhances learning. Students learn to work effectively in a group setting, where individual tasks later translate into success for the entire team.

Example lesson: Force and its characteristics

At the beginning of the class, the teacher explains the definition of force and the notion of a vector quantity and asks students to complete exercises on the worksheets. The teacher explains the first measurement of force by attaching a spring scale to the robot using the harness provided in the Physics Kit and lifts it from the ground. Then, the teacher asks students to read the result on the spring scale and note it, making sure they pay close attention to measurement accuracy. The students draw a diagram of the experiment in their worksheets and indicate the force vectors acting on the robot. Next, students measure the pulling force of the Photon robot using a spring scale. The students write down the measurements and analyze them.

Example lesson: Uniform linear motion

The teacher explains the concepts of uniform motion and speed, as well as the s = d / t formula. Next, students begin calculating the speed. The teacher picks volunteers to use the app and enter the time and distance that the robot will travel. The teacher instructs volunteers to get ready to measure the robot’s travel distance and time. The teacher launches the robot using the app and asks students to measure ‘d’ and ‘t’ and record the data in the worksheet. Then, students draw a travel and time graph. The teacher tells the students that the Photon’s base speed is 8 cm/s and asks them how far would the robot travel in 10 seconds, 2 minutes, and an hour.
