Einstein for Schools and the General Public
Johansson, K. E.; Kozma, C; Nilsson, Ch
Physics Education, v41 n4 p328-333 Jul 2006
In April 2005 the World Year of Physics (Einstein Year in the UK and Ireland) was celebrated with an Einstein week in Stockholm House of Science. Seven experiments illustrated Einstein's remarkable work in 1905 on Brownian motion, the photoelectric effect and special relativity. Thirteen school classes with 260 pupils, 30 teachers and 25 members of the general public took part in the different activities. The experiments and the Einstein theme have become an appreciated part of the modern physics activities in House of Science. This shows that physics themes with a set of related experiments have a role to play in school education.
