Girls in Physics
This video, from Teachers TV shows how Physics teachers, Barry Berndes, keeps his female students motivated and engaged by following the five golden rules for Girls in Physics.
Observing his lesson is Martin Hollins from the Institute of Physics who is keen to see how well the rules work.
Barry's lesson focuses on the processes that take place when vehicles brake and end up stationary. Once on task he explains how to set up an experiment to measure vehicle speed and braking distance.
The boys and the girls work in very different ways but both get good results to test their predictions.
