Physics 30 Lab Seminar - CALGARY
Join The Gilbertine Academy high school students for a term of physics labs! Whether you're working toward high school physics credit or want to have a solid understanding of labs, this is an excellent opportunity for your student.
Students in the Physics Laboratory 2023-2024 seminar will gain experience in using the scientific method, laboratory skills, and lab write ups pertaining to Physics.
In Physics 30, students will study and conduct experiments regarding: Momentum and Impulse (toy car collisions); Forces and Fields (determining factors that affect electrical force between two charged objects); Electromagnetic Radiation (using chocolate to calculate the speed of light); Atomic Physics (creating and analyzing models to understand the nature of an atom).
In both Physics 20 and 30, students will be coached and mentored in measurement, graphing, and algebraic reasoning but it is expected that they will already have adequate graphing and algebraic reasoning skills to manipulate basic algebraic equations. Also, students will do an online pre-lab assessment to ensure adequate preparation.
