  Abstract: Multiple presenters will share physics lessons and demonstrations originating from or inspired by Paul Doherty. Paul was a Senior Scientist and Science Educator at the Exploratorium Museum of San Francisco who passed away on August 17, 2017. For three decades he worked with middle and high school teachers in the Exploratorium Teacher Institute, having a significant impact on teachers locally in the San Francisco Bay Areas. Paul was well known in many other regions of the United States and worldwide throughout the physics and museum scientist/ educator communities. The presenters have had long and treasured associations with Paul, both through the museum and the local Northern California/ Nevada section of AAPT. This session will include remembrances of personal experiences, references to Paul’s role at the Exploratorium and to the breadth of his activities and experiences through a selection of demonstrations connected with Paul.
