Learn Physics with your phones


40% of kids in Australia are bored with STEM education - for good reason.
Physics education is highly theoretical, exam oriented and is disconnected from life experiences. The laws of physics operate all around us and our phones are capable of sensing all what we need to know in physics.

This is a hands-on phones-on session that connects young learners to the laws of physics using a series of playful activities.
