Hands-On = Minds-On

At Centenary, we view physics labs as adventures — there are no cookbook, color-by-the-numbers experiments here. Like all adventures, our labs are best undertaken by teams — students learn to solve problems and leverage the cooperation of their peers.

Because our faculty directly lead physics labs, we are able to build year by year on the collected wisdom of student experience to improve our labs. What works? What is fun?
