Teaching Physics by Magic

Physics Education, v54 n1 Article 015025 Jan 2019
In this paper we describe the results of some experiments about using surprising physics demonstrations, presented as magical phenomena followed by scientific explanations, for introducing physics topics in several teaching contexts. All the demonstrations have been designed to be implemented with easy to get and cheap materials, so that students can reproduce them at home. This approach has been exploited in Italian high schools, Italian elderly people education and French primary schools, with good results.
