Abstract

For two years I worked in East Timor helping to develop the new nation's physics curriculum. Together with local teachers, I created a manual of hands-on lessons, solidified the pre-secondary and secondary (middle and high) school curriculum, conducted nation-wide training for physics teachers of pre-secondary and secondary schools and began a new physics department at the national university complete with basic lab courses.
