– Math, Science & Technology –
Phil’s dynamic new presentation on math, science and technology integrates hands-on experiments and multimedia tools that make learning fun and engaging!
|Math Phil uses a giant vibrating string to demonstrate equivalence of fractions, and then shows students how to compare fractions based on their size. He also measures and records sounds in the MP room using his iPad, and creates patterns to make an entertaining musical composition with the students!|
Phil shows how energy and matter can be converted into
multiple forms. Using a FOSS sound cannon,
he demonstrates how
mechanical energy is converted into sound.
Next, he shows how
sound is transmitted over a beam of light
using a flashlight and a solar cell! After that, he focuses on
electricity and simple circuits. A highlight
of the presentation is when several student volunteers join hands to
make an electrical circuit that plays music!
|Technology Phil uses technology tools that enhance the learning of core subjects. During his presentation, he incorporates sound and graphics in a multimedia format. He also features inexpensive apps that work on an iPad and are readily available. Lastly, Phil has created a large collection of multimedia web activities for your students to use as a follow-up to this program!|
FAMILY ACTIVITY NIGHTS
– Math and Science Night –
Invite your families back for a fun and entertaining musical presentation on the math and science.
Phil guides everyone through an enriching series of hands-on FOSS experiments and Exploratorium displays.
Then, the students apply their knowledge by making rhythm and string instruments and joining together for an exciting concert featuring Dragon Dance Drumming from China!
The kids perform a Chinese Dragon Dance with their rhythm instruments.
