Operation Physics is a series of 13 Physics Manuals designed for students in grades 4-8 and presented for the first time in a workshop at San Diego State University in 1988. Gene Easter, teacher at Streetsboro High School , my wife Elnora and I formed a 3-person team that attended this workshop. Upon returning to Cleveland, Dr. Doris Simonis, Kent State University was contacted and became Project Director. Stan Christensen, Physics Department Chairman of KSU became the 4th member of a team that presented 2 or 3 week workshops to 35 teachers a year from 1990 through 2005. The workshop is continuing to this time under the direction of Gene Easter.
From 2006 through 2012 I used some of the units in a college course at Baldwin Wallace University for prospective middle school science teachers.
In the early years, I scanned, edited and reformatted the original materials into the manuals which are present in this website. While I retain the rights to these manuals, I give you permission to edit and use these and all materials in this website in your classroom. You may also share materials in this website with others,
