Applied Physics

Throughout this advanced, project-based course, students are challenged to demonstrate real-world applications of physics, mathematics and engineering concepts.
Students dive deeply into topics related to acoustics, electricity, mechanics and fluid dynamics. As part of their exploration, students design, build, test and analyze models to discover how and why things around us work the way they do. The year culminates in a public exhibition of an authentic, question-driven, data rich investigation in which students demonstrate their learning and commitment to diving deeply and expressing their curiosity in the field of Physics.
