Physics and Engineering is an 8 credit course that is team taught between the Physics teacher, Mr. Pendak and the Electronics/Engineering teacher, Mr. Claassen. The students apply the theory learned in Physics to solve problems using vex robotics, electronics, programming, 3D modelling, CAD and ROVs (underwater Submarine).
This is a course designed for students that like to take Physics to the next level and use it while involved in hands on labs and projects.
