Podcast: physics in the classroom
News · 07 May 2023
Many have rather bad memories of their physics classes in school. But why? Is it the subject, the curricula or maybe the teaching methods? And what can we do to change that? I joined German podcast "Sag mal du als Physiker" to discuss physics education in schools 🎙
