Include what measurements you will take and how you will take them. Draw a diagram to show your lab setup.
Note: The tubes we are using may not be long enough for us to get the 1 1/2 loop resonance. Do the calculations to figure this out. If it is indeed not long enough, you will have to use the 1/2 loop data to find the speed of sound - even though it is not as accurate a method.

The Youth Engagement though Science (YES!) program engages 20 rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors from the Washington DC area in exciting internships at the National Museum of Natural History. YES! Website Term: June – October, Deadline: January 29, 2016


The deadline for applications for the next class of the Gates Millennium Scholars Program will be January 13, 2016. https://www.gmsp.org/publicweb/AboutUs.aspx

Geosciences Bridge Program: The Geosciences Bridge Program is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and NOAA’s Living Marine Resources Cooperative Science Center (LMRCSC) at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. The program is for high school seniors to introduce them to ocean sciences, atmospheric sciences, and geographic information systems (GIS)/Remote Sensing techniques; strengthen their knowledge of mathematics; teach them life skills that will prepare them for college life; and enhance their academic performances through advisement, social support, and tutorial services. 

The program offers a 6-week paid internship ($500/week stipend + housing + meals) for students planning to pursue careers in the geosciences. The program includes lectures, field trips, hands-on activities, 2 courses for college credit (math and freshman seminar), housing, meals, travel to and from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and a stipend.

Here is a link to our website: https://www.umes.edu/cscgeosciences/ Applications due: March 31, 2016  Program dates: June 27-August 5, 2016

Adventures of the Mind is a summer enrichment opportunity for teens: August 2-9, 2015 at Rosemont College in Philadelphia.

Students can Apply directlyApplications are due June 30thScholarships are still available for qualifying students though we don’t discriminate against students who can pay tuition.



Students are allowed to use a calculator and the equation tables on the entire AP Physics 1, AP Physics 2, AP Physics C: Electricity & Magnetism, and AP Physics C: Mechanics Exams including both the multiple-choice and free response sections. 
From the College Board: 
The AP Physics 1 and 2 Exams include a new multiple-select, multiple-choice question type with two correct answers, both of which students must identify to earn credit. There are five of these questions and they appear at the end of the multiple-choice section.
The AP Physics 1 and 2 Exams include a question that asks students how they would design an experiment, collect data, and discover sources of uncertainty. Learn more about the depth of understanding of experimental uncertainty (.pdf/72KB) that will be assessed on the exams.
The AP Physics 1 and 2 Exams include several free-response questions, one of which will require students to compose a paragraph-length argument as part of their response. Learn more about what a paragraph-length response (.pdf/71KB) is and how it will be scored.
The equation tables that were published in the AP Physics 1 and AP Physics 2 Course and Exam Description have been revised to provide complete definitions of symbols (.doc/106KB). Please disregard the equation tables in the current version of the course and exam description, and instead refer to these revised equation tables:
AP Physics 1 Equation Tables (.pdf/187KB), AP Physics 2 Equation Tables (.pdf/308KB)

Read lab paper: AP1 Lab Speed of Sound.pdf 
AND: Each person should Write a draft Experimental procedure: Your procedure should be written clearly in enough detail so that another group of students can perform your experiment by following your procedure. Include what measurements you will take and how you will take them. Draw a diagram to show your lab setup.
Note: The tubes we are using may not be long enough for us to get the 1 1/2 loop resonance. Do the calculations to figure this out. If it is indeed not long enough, you will have to use the 1/2 loop data to find the speed of sound - even though it is not as accurate a method.
