Incorporating the Stories of Women, People of Color, and LGBTQ+ Scientists Into the Physics Classroom
NSTA
 
For many high school students, physics is an abstract subject with complex mathematical statements explaining the world around them. The mathematics can feel intimidating and the introduction of difficult vocabulary, such as force, kinetic energy, or spectroscopy, can give students the impression that physics is impractical or irrelevant in their daily lives. Moreover, women and minority students tend to be dissuaded from studying physics.
