Abstract


Fluid pressure is considered as an abstract concept so that innovative method must be used to help the students understand it correctly. We introduced Above Ground Storage Tank (AST) to the students in order to help them grasp the fundamentals of fluid pressure and evaluated how this approach improved their scientific communication ability. Based on their ability in communicating the mechanism of fluid pressure, students’ were able to organize their knowledge, delivering their knowledge to other people, and making better conclusion after the introduction of AST. Thus, it can be concluded that the introduction of AST can improve students’ scientific communication ability.
