As a compliment to the ‘Physics First’ movement at Secaucus High School, the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Academy (STEM) are taking AP Physics 1 in their Freshman year of high school. The course combines live demonstrations with challenging problems in physics that encourage the students to think in a more complex way. Dr. John Ennis, the Physics instructor and writer for New Jersey Center for Teaching and Learning, started the course this September.
In the photograph above, “Free-fall Friday” was the 3rd AP Physics 1 lab the students had since beginning the school year. Students took to the tennis court to perform a kinematics lab examining the motion of free-falling tennis balls. The course instructor is Dr. John Ennis .
Friday, 21 October will be the Second Annual Day of Respect, Reflection, and Remembrance at Secaucus Middle and High School. Among the guest speakers will include Mark Barden, parent of Sandy Hook victim Daniel Barden; World War II Concentration Camp Liberator Alan Moskin, Holocaust Hidden Children Rosa Sirota and Maren Friedman, World Trade Center 1993 bombing and 9-11 terror attack rescuer Gary Smiley, 9-11 Survivor Brian Branco, distracted driving victim Gabe Hurley, among others.
