Summer
Prerequisites 
Completion of Honors Physics (OP005) or
Completion of AP Physics C: Mechanics (OP051) and AP Physics C: Electricity & Magnetism (OP053) during the previous academic year

Physics Lab is a residential summer course held on campus during Summer @ Stanford that allows students to explore physics topics through hands-on experimentation in a lab class setting. Experiments correspond with topics covered in Honors Physics (OP005), AP Physics C: Mechanics (OP051) and AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism (OP053), and experiments will be scaffolded according to students’ depth of understanding. Students gain a variety of skills needed in a research lab, including experience with modern tools and techniques and effective communication of results.
