Physics in Summer School instead of High school
My sophomore daughter attends a small private high school and is interested in pursuing engineering in college and hopes to go to Cal Poly or UC. Though we know it's not required to have Physics in high school if you have taken enough of other sciences, we learned from my older child's experience with similar career goals that having some exposure to physics before college was beneficial for admissions but also as preparation for college physics. Physics is not strong at our high school and with one teacher at the school who let's just say does not inspire a love of learning physics, we are considering that she take a summer class either this summer or next summer. My question is has your child done summer physics, if so, did he/she like it and where would you recommend taking this class in the Oakland/Berkeley or nearby areas. Thanks for any insight.
