Wayne,
=20
Some musings:
=20
You have two great ideas. The hard part is to choose one. =20
=20
It is always best to try get a good invited speaker.
=20
The Physics misconceptions was a hot workshop at the meeting this year =
thanks to Eric Ayers's work. It deserves serious consideration. =
Perhaps you might talk with Eric and ask him if he would speak as an =
invited speaker?
=20
Would Prof. Campbell himself want to speak on the topic of the extension =
of the senses or does he have an invited speaker in mind for his topic?
=20

Subject: [tap-l] Session ideas



Hi All,

I'm working on the PIRA invited session for next year's AAPT =
meeting and would like a little feedback.

I have 2 ideas that I am wrestling with at the moment.=20

One topic I am considering is misconceptions in physics: demos that =
misrepresent the physics, the teaching of incorrect science, avoiding =
misconceptions with the right demo, historic apparatus that claimed to =
demonstrate physics phenomena, but didn't and so on.

The other topic I am considering, a suggestion from Prof. Campbell of =
MI, is a session devoted to apparatus that extend our senses. The =
telescope is an obvious one, but since they are also making a movie on =
the history of the telescope I might not want to include it. However, =
cameras and sensors that "see" in the IR and UV, detection of ultrasonic =
and infrasonic sound or very low sound, and electronic "sniffers" are =
some of the possibilities (I'm sure there are more).

Any opinion or suggestion you would like to contribute would =
really be appreciated.

Thanks,

Wayne
