“I begin every new semester by telling my students that physics is math but with toys. On average, 80% of our Physics class is hands-on,” shared HS Physics and Math teacher Mr. Whitehead.
True to this word, Concordia’s high school Astronomy and Physics classes put Einstein's representation of gravity to the test by recreating a real-life model that showed how matter bends space time. This demonstrated how planets and their moons travel in a straight line but the space itself is actually curved, naturally leading to the formation of solar systems.
“Physics is often very theory heavy and so putting these theories in action makes it easier to understand and the science come alive,” said Thuan (Grade 11).
