Physics and Astronomy Education

DEMSETZ, HOELLWARTH, KELLER

Investigate how people learn physics and astronomy.

Several Cal Poly physics faculty are active in physics and astronomy education research. We explore how students learn and study methods that promote better understanding of physics and astronomy. We are also involved in pursuing the use of citizen science projects to enhance student engagement and learning.
