Teslamania Demo-Derby 2016
Physics Education Innovation Fair

at Stony Brook University

Lunch Included


What is it?

Teslamania 2016 is a show of physics teachers' ideas, inventions and activities aimed at improving physics education, making physics interesting for students, and giving both new and experienced teachers ways to improve their craft.  Check out some highlights from past years:

The Incredible Inertial Egg

Projectile Droplets

Inertia Demos

Refraction Shot Glass

Circular Motion Demos

 How does it work?

We need you!  We need you to share your best ideas and practices at Teslamania.  In turn we hope you will take some new and innovative ideas from other teachers back to your classroom.

Who can participate?

Teachers specializing in the teaching of introductory physics/physical science courses at the Secondary, College, and University levels are invited to participate. 

We welcome students!  Students of all kinds are encouraged to attend or present.

Space is limited and registration ends when all tickets are gone or October 10th 2016 - whichever occurs first.
