The IPhy (physics for photonics and microelectronics) program at Grenoble INP – Phelma, UGA won a jury’s favorite award from the CGE, a consortium of competitive higher education institutions in France, for its challenge-based curriculum.
So, what are the challenges, exactly? A series of cross-disciplinary tasks students must complete as they work on a project about a physical or optical phenomenon. The goal? To give students increasing responsibilities and teach them to work independently.
This year, a group of students set up an optical bench and automated data acquisition system to study the Zeeman effect in quantum physics.
The teaching team assists the third-year students who, in turn, assist the second-year students, who teach a simplified version of the project to first-year students.
