Physics Team students take 1st place!

By Mr. Yury Belyavsky, IB Diploma Coordinator

After  a four year break, our Physics Team  consisting of students J. Liao, A. Joseph, J. Margiewicz, N. Shanazarova, and K. Patel, won 1st place in Division 1 in our region (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware) among the students studying Physics one year  in the National Physics Bowl competition sponsored by the American Association of Physics Teachers!!!

More than 4000 students from over 200 schools (including Central High School) participated in this competition. Although none of our students were the highest scorer,  as a team, we were winners.

The school will receive a $50 gift certificate from Vernier, and the students will receive the T-shirts “Regional Champion”, TI-30 MultiView scientific calculators, and a copy of “Mad about Modern Physics” book.
