This Week in AP Physics
YOU DID IT! Congratulations on all you’ve accomplished this year! Now onto our pinewood derby engineering project! Remember: NO USE OF THE INTERWEBS!!!

This Week in Physics
If you’re in third period, your unit 8 test is on Monday. For everyone, this week marks the beginning of our bonus unit on sound. Musicians take note: Please consider bringing your instruments to class when we’re ready (later in the week) so that we can see how physics makes them work.

Cool Science of the Week
With the NFL draft over, it’s interesting to see how science can help teams choose their picks. The ESPN sports science lab tested the acceleration abilities and vision of the Viking’s first-round pick, Laquon Treadwell and the Redskin’s Josh Doctson. Not that the Browns didn’t do a good job, but this video makes me kind of jealous!
