AP Physics students visited the UW-Whitewater Physics department on Thursday, December 14. They did some fun activities with static electricity with Dr. Sahyun. They also varied the magnetic field across an electron beam, measured the resulting curvature of the beam, and found the charge-to-mass ratio of an electron, re-creating an experiment done by early quantum physics scientists. With Dr. Oz, they used the Scanning Electron Microscope to take high-magnification images of objects like paper and a human hair, which can be used in crime lab applications. Thanks to Dr. Sahyun and Dr. Oz; we had a great time and learned a lot!
