Title: PhET: Introduction to Static Electricity using Electric Field Hockey and Charges and Fields
Url: https://phet.colorado.edu/en/contributions/view/2853
Creator: Loeblein, Trish
Publisher: University of Colorado, Boulder
Description: This inquiry-based lesson plan is intended to be used in tandem with the PhET Electric Field Hockey simulation. Students place electric charges on a simulated ice field to guide a hockey puck into a goal. As they investigate charge interaction, the teacher integrates vector addition and free-body diagrams to help students understand strength and direction of the electric field around a charged body.
