Abstract [en]

Thermal cameras offer real-time visual access to otherwise invisible thermodynamic phenomena, which are conceptually demanding for learners during traditional teaching. We present three studies of students’ interaction with laboratory activities that employ infrared (IR) cameras to teach challenging thermal concepts at grades 4, 7 and 10-12. Visualization of heat-related concepts in combination with predict-observe-explain (POE) experiments offers students and teachers a pedagogically powerful means for unveiling abstract yet fundamental physics concepts.
