Physics by Demonstrations is a web site
created by an international team of students. It was created as our entry
to the International Scholarship Competition,
ThinkQuest. We designed and put
together this web site to teach the wonderful subject of physics on high
school level. We believe that visual representation helps learning and
that is why we have so many visual aids on our site, such as Java applets.
We also believe that our site will make physics easier and fun to learn and
we appreciate your visit.
I am an 8th grade student from Chelyabinsk, Russia.
Since my discovering the wonderful world of Internet three years ago I became
an Internet addict learning everything with it and about it (and I am a fast learner).
first heard of the ThinkQuest
competition, I decided to participate in it and to demonstrate my
skills. Together with Vlad Feldman who agreed to be the main writer for our site,
we have made it, trying our best.
I am originally from Ukraine and now living in San Jose, CA, United States.
I have recently graduated from high school. When I heard about ThinkQuest, I decided to give it a try and found Sergei. Together we formed a team and did our best to put together this site. Sergei took care of the design while I took care of the writing. I will
attend a community college in the fall. Then I will transfer
to a four-year university where I hope to get a degree in either
computer information systems (CIS) or computer engineering.
Well, what can I say about myself? When Sergei asked me to
be the head coach for the ThinkQuest team,
I agreed without hesitation. Although I am not a web or graphics designer,
nor a teacher, I tried to help the team as much as I was able, organizing the
work and providing free Internet access when possible. I was overwhelmed with a lot of
technical questions, but Sergei used to know more than me on all this stuff...
Hello, I am a sophomore of South Ural State
University, willing to become a computer programmer in future. Sergei asked me
to consult him on some Java programming for this site, and I just could not
refuse him to this little request. And as I can see, my consultations were not
so useless.. :)
