When biological science students walk through the physics lecture room door on their first day at the University of Guelph, they generally fall into one of two categories: terrified or ambivalent. Almost no one is excited to be there, as they’ve been putting off taking physics for as long as possible. Knowing this, we have designed our service courses so that by the end of week 12 they have a much greater appreciation for our discipline. Many even go so far as to say that our class was their favourite course of the semester! Come and find out more about our approach to building up confidence in first-year science students at the University of Guelph.
