What Physicists Have Been Doing with Elementary School Science.
Werntz, James H.
This paper summarizes what physicists can bring to school science and what work in school science curriculum development has given, through the work of college and university physicists, to physics education. The physicist brings the similarity of the style of understanding as a child, which is inquisitive experimentation. He also has a perspective on the operations and processes of science gained through detailed involvement in the knowledge, content and development of the subject. Physicists in return have gain a perspective on the teaching of physics at the college level and have created closer ties between schools and colleges. A by-product has been the building of important interrelationships between the several components of the curriculum, especially math and science. (Author/TS)
