Modern Physicist Project: Home

Mr. Pullen; Mr. Malmberg

Project Description

You will choose a physicist from the list supplied by your teacher as the focus of this project.  You will do your research using the resources in this Guide and will make a 3 - 5 minute video presentation of your results.  A brief biography should be included, but it should not be the focus of your talk.  Your focus will be the concepts discovered or refined by the physicist, his or her contributions to the field of physics, and his or her greatest accomplishment(s).  Be sure to use scholarly resources such as those presented in this Guide, and refrain from a cold Google search!  You will cite your sources used in the APA style, and your final shot in the video should be your References for the project. Do not hesitate to ask your teacher or a librarian if you need help along the way.
