H.S. Physics Projects
Getting to observe the Honors Physics projects at the high school is always a treat. We got to see students take the skills that they have learned, and apply them into the creation of a project that has a "real-world" application. It is fun to see their creative ideas, and it is impressive to see the level of skill that each group of students demonstrated. The 8th grade students, and I, come away from this experience amazed and inspired.
