Abstract

With examples we show the change in physics research methods in Finland. From mere passive observations physics moved towards experiments and even planning special experiments to solve particular problems, the goal being to establish a theory of the phenomenon under study. In this way a fruitful interaction between experiment and theory emerged. Individual learning repeat this progression.
