Scanning for Time: Science and Art on a Photocopier
Muller, Eric
Physics Teacher, v57 n1 p9-13 Jan 2019
What do you get when you cross a rubber band with a photocopier? You get a whole series of physics lessons and some great images! It's easy to get this activity up and running, be amazed, and apply it to any number of scientific concepts. It lends itself to a whole host of investigations. This easy-to-do activity can also be aligned to NGSS outcomes and three-dimensional learning. It's science, art, and fun, and your results may be surprisingly…. well, surprising.
