Physics Lab


Our Level 1 physics labs offer a low stress environment without formal lab reports. Instead we focus on hands-on experience and translating concepts learned in lectures to the real world. Working in small groups, you can expect to use a cart system, force and motion sensors, springs, and waves on string.

One of the labs is a take-home lab where you will work in small groups to film a short video of a physics experiment or demonstration, and explain the physics behind it. This lab is intentionally left open-ended to give you room to be creative and have fun.
