Akamai Day 2 - Lenses and Refraction

Day 2 - playing with clearish stuff, light and lasers. Good fun. I always like how this day goes... It's the most fun for me I think because there's so much stuff around to use to confuse the students and then watch them try to unconfuse themselves. And they all come out knowing way more 'real' information. It's one thing to regurgitate some words spoon-fed to you in a classroom. It's another to make something work given materials at hand. I think that's the substance of inquiry -not just passing a multiple-choice test but really using your knowledge of how things work to do something.
