PhoolProof Physics has been created for you created by an international team of three high school students: Erin, Jessica, and Sabin, as a ThinkQuest project . We welcome any suggestions you have for the improvement of this website, and invite you to send your comments to any of us, in the hopes that we can make your Physics learning experience even more enjoyable. Thank you for visiting PhoolProof Physics.
Erin lives in California. She is a senior in high school. Erin plays the flute and also participates in several musical ensembles.
Jessica Chapman lives in Switzerland, attending a high school where Physics is one of the six subjects she is studying before taking the International Baccalaureate exams. She thought it would be fun to have her name on a web page, and in doing so, decided to help make one that would benefit the Internet community. Luckily, Jessica is also interested in art, because she had to make the graphics for this site.
Sabin lives in Romania. He attends one of Romania's major highschools. He has been interested in computers, and particularly in the Internet, for several years. He has previously constructed other web sites and programmed interactive Physics applications but this is the first time he was involved in such a challenging international project.He also likes to travel and hopes that one day he will meet the two teammates he has been working with over the Internet for almost one year.
