About this event

This workshop can be logged as Elective Professional Development.

N.B. This workshop is created utilising the HSC Physics syllabus dot points. It is practical in nature, and requires the use of a laptop. and phone / Ipad. Please bring a laptop with Microsoft Excel for data collection and analysis, and wear covered in shoes.

This workshop begins with teachers exploring the properties of mechanical waves such as wave superposition and constructive and destructive interference. Teachers then explore the properties of light, examining the refractive index of various solids and liquids as well as the phenomenon of total internal reflection. Teachers then explore the properties of sound waves such as resonance, beats and superposition.

The second part of the workshop explores thermodynamics and the various experiments that can can be used to teach the core concepts of thermodynamics such as specific heat capacity, latent heat of fusion and more in an engaging, data driven way.

Organiser Matt Dodds ~ Science With Mat Pty Ltd

Organiser of PD3 HSC Physics: Experiments & Investigations Module 3 ~ 30/10/21

Matt Dodds was born with a love of Science and has a drive to improve how science is taught. Matt is the founder of Science with Mat and is a High School Science Teacher and Presenter living in regional NSW. He has a deep affinity for Physics and Astrophysics.

Matt has an inherent way of communicating to both teachers and students, with modern ways to improve how experiments and investigations are taught by teachers, and understood by engaged students. Matt loves thinking of different ways for students to showcase their understanding and creates low cost experiments so no student misses out on any ‘ah-ha’ moments.

Matt is also one of three National Astronomy Education Coordinators for the International Astronomical Union and a teacher volunteer for ASTRO 3D; contributing to their educational outreach program through YouTube videos and organising Depth Study excursions. He has previously presented at CONASTA, National Science Week, UNE GRASS and Universities and always enjoys MC-ing for Coonabarabran’s ‘Science in the Pub’ for the Siding Spring Observatory Starfest weekend.
