TAPT: Mastering Static Electricity

Host: Chris Meyer
Wed. Sept 30 
York Mills CI, 490 York Mills Rd., Rm 112
4:00 – 6:00 (Refreshments 4-4:30)

Does static electricity have you perplexed? Boost your confidence and improve your understanding of this fascinating and shocking (couldn't resist) topic, which is the foundation for our understanding of current electricity. Join Chris Meyer at York Mills C. I. for an after school session of hands-on exploration. You will work through an inquiry-based lesson on the fundamentals of static electricity and build your understanding of how charges behave in solid matter. The lesson helps target common student (and teacher!) misconceptions and will be of particular interest to teachers of grade 9 science and grade 12 physics who would like to polish their skills. The session will also give you lots of ideas for activities to use with your students. Grab a colleague to bring along! As usual, we will have snacks and socializing time from 4:00 – 4:30. Please email Chris (
christopher.meyer@tdsb.on.ca) to let him know that you are coming so we can be sure to have enough food. See you there!
