We describe some theatrical strategies adopted in a two hour workshop in order to show some meaningful experiments and the underlying useful ideas to describe a secondary school path on oscillations, that develops from harmonic motion to normal modes of oscillations, and makes extensive use of video analysis, data logging, slow motions and applet simulations. Theatre is an extremely useful tool to stimulate motivation starting from positive emotions. That is the reason why the theatrical approach to the presentation of physical themes has been explored by the group “Lo spettacolo della Fisica” [Spettacolodellafisica 2014] of the Physics Department of University of Milano for the last ten years [Carpineti et al. 2011; Carpineti et al. 2006] and has been inserted also in the European FP7 Project TEMI (Teaching Enquiry with Mysteries Incorporated) [Temi 2014] which involves 13 different partners coming from 11 European countries, among which the Italian (Milan) group. According to the TEMI guidelines, this workshop has a written script based on emotionally engaging activities of presenting mysteries to be solved while participants have been involved in nice experiments following the developed path.
