Q202 is an introductory physics course that concentrates on aspects of
light, color, balance, sound, static electricity, current electricity and
magnetism.  There are two 50-minutes lectures each week as well as a
three-hour lab which encourages hands-on activities and learning.  Q202
emphasizes topics and methods that can be taught in elementary or middle
school classrooms.  Each lab features at least one science-oriented
make-and-take item which students construct and can keep, such as
kaleidoscopes, periscopes, optical illusions, balancing toys, and
electrical games.  Students will work during the semester at the local
WonderLab Museum of Science, Health and Technology, located on the
courthouse square in downtown Bloomington.  Note that exams are scheduled
at special times listed in the Schedule of Classes.
