Energy Demonstrations at SMART Program

RDCEP summer students demonstrated the energy demo library kits to high school students in Hyde park neighborhood through the SMART program conducted by the physics department at the University of Chicago. 

This fun outreach helped the summer students refine the curriculum materials for the energy demo library kits. They got to see where the written instructions worked and where it needed more tweaking, through interacting with others. They also conducted pre- and post- surveys to understand how well the demonstrations work in teaching students about energy in a hands-on way.
