Physics Education: A Pragmatic Approach to Vocational, Entrepreneurship and Economic Advancement
In this period of economy set back and stagnancy, which has resulted into a frequent vociferous cry of the masses, we need other practical and workable channels that can bring forth economic revival and multiple employments for the masses. Hence, this study critically reveals and elucidates the unnoticed vocational aspects of physics and the principles guiding them. Some of these vocational packages in physics are electrical repairs or installation and electronic appliance repairs or assembling, building of local boat, setting up of solar panels. Other realistic skills identified and explained in this study include operation of optical service centers, production of mirrors, assembling of some optical instruments such as camera, periscope and projectors, installation of refrigeration and cold room gadgets, setting up of x-ray and ultrasound services etc. the barriers that limit physics education from fully reaching and realizing the desired apogee of vocational exploit, entrepreneurship, economic development and the mechanism required to remove the limitation were also emphasized in the study.
