About the Event

"The art of Physics is critical thinking. 

The art of Physics education is to learn through inquiry". --by Prof. Man 

Host: Dr. Jiang Pu (Bio here) , Founder of NextGen Education

Guest speaker: Professor Man  

  • Ph.D. in Physics from Princeton University 
  • Tenured full professor with 10+ years' of experience in teaching physics
  • Published many papers in top scientific journals such as "Nature", "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences", "Physics Review Letters",  and "Nature Communications"
  • Passionate advoate for K-12 science education with scientific writing and outreach activities on frontier physics topics

Topic: Why and How to Learn Physics? 

  • Is physics that hard?
  • Is physics “talent” inborn or acquired?
  • In Germany and other countries, formal physics begins in the 7th grade. What did USA students miss?
  • Why is physics special in providing critical-thinking and problem-solving training?
  • How to plant the seed for the lifelong pleasure of finding things out?
  • What are essential to master before taking AP physics?
  • How is physics related to and different from math?
  • Why shouldn't qualitative physics study rely on and wait for math study?
  • How to plan for different physics study roadmaps based on different academic goals?
  • What is wrong with physics education in the USA?
  • How can we fix it for our kids?
  • How to get kids interested in Physics? E.g. What is the science behind the first black-hole image in 2019? How to explain every year’s Physics Nobel Prize to the students? 

Direct interactions with a research-active physics professor can greatly inspire kids’ interests and broaden their vision.
