Upper school physics students recently took first place in their region in the annual American Association of Physics Teachers’ Physics Bowl. The United States is comprised of 15 regions and Harker ranked third across all regions. Approximately 4,500 students from 200 schools took the examination across the United States, Canada, China and the Republic of Korea.
Harker competes in the division two portion of the competition, which is for students who have completed a year of physics. All of our students enrolled in AP physics B and C take the examination. They do not do any special preparation for the test, other than their already rigorous class work, making their accomplishments all the more impressive.
