My greetings, my name is Artem Polezhaka
I am an enthusiast, who is interested in science and education. Considerable part of my life was devoted to teaching methods of physics both for students and children. Thus today I would like to share my experience and results with you. Here you can find out about me.
This resource was created for the purpose of the science popularization. Basis of the site includes more than 100 interesting articles with unusual physical tasks for pupils. The beginning of the article starts with a short story followed by photos or videos, such like trampolining elephant, and then there is a set of tasks concerning the appropriate subject. Thus we learn a free fall from the post about elephant jumping on trampoline. Such tasks surprise pupils, make them show interest and think about science. Comfortable navigation round topics and classes allows pupils to easily find the very articles about physics they need.
Ukrainian and Russian are the main languages of the site; translation of such a huge material to English is a hard work. That is why I mention here only selected articles about my work with children, methodology, experiments and inventions.
As I promised, I spread out the first information about this educational device. “Aerostil” was created in Kharkiv Read more
Basing on the study group “The Young Physicist” my colleagues and I carried out a small investigation among pupils of the 2nd-4th forms concerning their understanding of the molecular nature of gas. Their understanding of what gas is pupils expressed in drawings. Their works are very bright and speak for themselves, I invite you to get acquainted with the investigation results. Read more
The last outing within an international project “Scientific Fun – Science outing in Ukraine” took place in Ukraine. It was held on October 5, 2013 in Kharkov in the main building of V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University. I’d like to mention that among a lot of groups “The young physics’ circle” (Maliy Karazin University ) and Kharkiv secondary school №29 took part in Kharkov outing with a dignity. Read more
With reference to the article: Why it’s so important for children to make their own experiment I put new photos of our pupils’ experiments at the study group «Young physicist» (7-9 years old). Read more
At our study group called “Young physicist” we try not only to teach physics, but also to develop each child’s mental capacity and contribute to his formation. Read more
Several months ago I’ve got a letter with a question: “Artem, would you like to visit our school in Montenegro and hold a master class for our children?” Of course, I Read more
