Graduates’ research to be printed in science journal

By David Lim

The American Journal of Physics will feature a research paper in its October issue written by two students in the Studies for Scientific Research class.

The paper, entitled “New experimental method of visualizing the electric field due to surface charges on circuit elements,” was submitted in April 2009 by Rebecca Jacobs ’09 and Alex de Salazar ’09 with the support of science teacher Dr. Antonio Nassar.

“Harvard Westlake is the only high school in the nation, perhaps in the world, published in the American Journal of Physics,” Nassar said.
