iPeed on the iPad: Physics for Pre-schoolers

The other week I had the pleasure of attending the inaugural Institute of Physics NSW Physics in the Pub bash in Sydney, hosted by +Phil Dooley. It was an excellent night of presentations (8 minutes each, TeachMeet-style), all of which were very informative and some also very entertaining, musical and humorous (check out Physics Hacks by Chris Stewart - very funny (bad language warning)). The networking was also top notch.

My contribution was 'iPeed on the iPad: Physics for Pre-schoolers'. Essentially, I demonstrated how a pre-schooler could have fun (learning physics at the same time) on the iPad using such apps as Planets and Universe Splitter. A recording of my presentation can be viewed below. Many thanks to Phil for organising, hosting and entertaining, Boris and AIP NSW for supporting, Chris for also entertaining and cutting the videos and to Shane Hengst from UNSW - Physics Outreach Unit for the photos.
