“High school physics students across most of America are not required to learn about pretty much any physical phenomena discovered or explained more recently than 1865.”
“Yes, 1865. That’s the year the Civil War ended and well over a decade before Albert Einstein was even born.”
To be honest, Physics was my LEAST favorite course in high school, and in college. That’s why I waited until my last semester of my entire collegiate career to take my physics course haha. For some reason, it just doesn’t ‘click’ with me as well as biology, ecology, or geology. Thankfully in college, I got an A in the course and I couldn’t have been more happy to have passed the class that I was dreading the most. Don’t get me wrong, the class wasn’t horrible– my professor was a very nice man who was always there to help me when I had questions. We had awesome field trips, and I learned a lot.
But, the video above just shows how secluded and old fashioned our science curriculum is in America. Hopefully when I have children of my own, they will learn about science past the discoveries made in 1865. We have come SO FAR from that time period, that our future generations need to be informed of going on into their great big futures.
ON ANOTHER NOTE…
I’m leaving today for my Bud Light Port Paradise Cruise I won a couple of weeks ago!! I can’t believe that it’s actually happening, and that I will be in Florida in a couple of hours, and in the Bahamas late Friday night! I’m planning on taking lots of pictures and videos to make a little summary video diary of the trip when I return (which of course I’ll share with all my loyal readers).
Wish me luck and many fun adventures ahead 🙂 And feel free to leave some comments so I can come back home to some happy posts !
