Rocky Point High School’s AP Physics class taught by Jack Nielsen took an up-close look at some of the concepts they are learning during a recent trip to Adelphi University.

During their visit, the students took a tour through the physics department and met with current Adelphi physics students and professors. The hosting professionals gave various demonstrations related to physics, such as experimentally determining the speed of light, exploring the effects of polarization and presentations of research in laser technology.  

The trip was a great opportunity for students to see the application of physics and how they can further expand on their knowledge of the science after high school.
