The feasibility of implementing a studio physics course at WPI was assessed by preparing for, implementing, and evaluating a pilot course. Studio physics provides an alternative, hands-on learning method for students. Using the Mechanics Baseline Test (MBT) and multiple feedback methods, students’ qualitative and quantitative data were analyzed. The average resulting normalized gain of the class on the MBT was 18% (n=21). With continued support, studio physics has the potential to become an option for all students at WPI.
