Girls in Physics videos

Two videos illustrating the messages of the Girls in the Physics Classroom report and teachers' guide.

The videos aim to present the findings of the research in an accessible and entertaining way.  They show teaching approaches that the research suggests will promote effective learning of physics among all students, and particularly encourage girls to consider continuing with the subject.

The resource pack Girls in the Physics Classroom: A teachers’ guide to action includes suggested activities to accompany the videos.
