April 12: Fred Hoffman “Energy: Historical and Continuing Perspective”Fred Hoffman

We will look at the forms of energy that have evolved over time and how it’s conservation has played such an important role. Along the way you will learn how alcohol played a part and how different forces cause energies to change form.

Fred Hoffman is a retired high school physics teacher after 43 years of trying to get students to realize that “Physics is Phun” and is hoping that you will realize it too.
