'ProjecfPh^ics 1 To Start This Fait A new course, tiased on Harvard Project Physics, will start in Fayetteville High School when school resumes this ' fall in the phystes department. The course, according to Jack Kreie, is intended for both the science-shy and the science- major and ho said "The motto is physics is fun." Students with differing interests may show achievement in different ways. There; : ; are some activities in which all will participate, but some 1 may. concentrate on historical readings Svhile others pursue the mathematical analysis of problems and still others may choose to do extensive worK in the laboratory. .' . . Basic concepts of physics concerning such things as energy and force, electricity and magnetism, and gravity and acceleration will be the core of the course. "But the social influences and history of science \yill be used as aids in leaching in an effort lo relate these concepts to the society in which we live," he said. Ideas will be presented in a vari'ety of ways including film loops, readers, programmed instruction booklets, overhead projection materials, and student handbooks.
