Prerequisite: Permission of the department
Advanced Research Physics is a year-long investigation into topics in contemporary physics. The first half of the year is a lab-centered investigation of the ultimate building blocks of the universe, using ideas both from Einstein's Theory of Relativity and from quantum theory in our studies. The second half of the year is devoted to student-run research projects; the students are responsible for all aspects of the investigation, from writing an initial proposal to presenting the results of the study publicly in May.
NOTE: this course does not prepare students for any Advanced Placement exam in physics.
