Hello and welcome to my website.
I’m Farid Minawi, an e-learning developer and physics educator.
I built the website Physics Zone (physics-zone.com) in 2000. At that time, I wanted it to be a resourceful physics website for upper high school and undergraduate university students.
After a few years, I developed several simulations using Adobe Flash™ and the ActionScript language and published them on the site.
As a physics teacher and a physics Lab instructor, I enjoyed introducing the subjects by approaching real-life situations from different points of view that gain interest, simply, and by integrating the theoretical study with the experimental work and digital learning activities, for several years.
My approach to teaching is, in general, to guide the students to discover rather than just receive, which makes the students taste, not just understand, and instills a love for the material.
I also have a passion for electronics, and I have such good experience with microcontrollers like PIC and Arduino that I made a PC-based oscilloscope using a PIC microcontroller.
I never stop learning. I always keep in touch with the never-stopping advances in technology and keep abreast of the progress in the academic and educational fields. My motto in learning is the saying of Henry Ford: “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.”
My native language is Arabic, and I speak English quite well.
I enjoy reading, programming, circuit design, and playing chess.
Thank you for your interest in knowing more about me.
