Year 3 Courses

Advanced Placement Physics 2

Students take the second half of the AP Physics curriculum. This is an algebra-based course that studies fluids, thermodynamics, electricity, magnetism, optics, and nuclear physics. Students will approach these topics with detailed, hands-on labs. This class promoted critical thinking, ensuring that a student will obtain and retain information better than if they just read a textbook.

Engineering of Electrical Systems

This class mimics a course offered at College of Marin and offers the students an opportunity to earn college credit (and have a college class on their transcript for universities to see) at the end of the course. The students will apply what they are learning in AP Physics 2 to the construction and design of electrical systems. In the past, students have used out fabrication tools to construct a robot that is programmed to move effectively through a maze, a solar-powered hotdog cooker that can track sunlight to best cook a sausage of choice, and motors that are powered by laser-cut gear systems.
