Perhaps you used to take things apart as a child, and you knew how things worked around at home. Whether you did or did not, much has changed since our childhood, and modern appliances seem a bit of a mystery, if not outright magic! In this course, we will learn how some common and not-so-common appliances work. For the second session, students’ suggestions will be taken into account, so that the one thing you really wanted to know about might be covered as well.

Daniel ben-Avraham is a Clarkson Professor in the Physics Department and in the Math Department. He has been teaching Physics at Clarkson since 1987. Daniel received the Leon LeBeau SOARing Educator award in Fall 2018.

NOTE: Bring a sense of fun and a curious, open mind.
