Low Cost - High Tech (1996 - 2000, 2008 - 2011)
recent years a variety of new materials and techniques have found
their way into everyday-life and into the hands of children, e.
g. audio-CDs, cellular phones, remote controls etc. In contrast
to this development, no experimentally and methodically
equivalent approach can be claimed in teaching - for example, in
terms of the implementation of new materials and techniques into
teaching as well as in terms of a straightforward and cost-saving
approach. The objective here is to give examples of low-cost
experiments with a high-tech background from everyday-life.
Furthermore, we argue that these kind of experiments can be
integrated into the classical collection of low-cost experiments.
