  • AAPT Announces the 2014 U.S. Physics Team

    Alexandr Wang, a senior at Los Alamos High School, is selected for the U.S. Physics Team.  

    College Park, MD, May 21, 2014—This spring you can find America’s brightest emerging physicists at Physics Boot Camp.  They come from California, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, New Mexico, and Texas. There are high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Seven of them are returning as second time members of the United States Physics Team. They will arrive in College Park, MD, later this month to prepare for the next stage of the competition to identify the world’s best high school physics students.

    Nineteen students from across the U.S. have emerged through a rigorous exam process that began last January with approximately 4,277 students who participated in the Fnet=ma exam to become the 2014 U.S. Physics Team. These students will continue to train for the mentally grueling exams and lab tests they'll face at the 45th International Physics Olympiad to be held from July 13 – 21, 2014 in Astana, Kazakhstan, where more than 400 student scholars from 92 nations will test their knowledge in physics, competing with the best in the world. Over the past ten years, every U.S. Physics Team member traveling to the international competition has returned with a medal.

  • Congratulations to Daniel Ahrens on a strong finish at the Tournament of Champions Congressional Debate Tournament (TOC) at the University of Kentucky this weekend.  
    Daniel finished 42nd in a pool of 98 Congressional Debaters from 29 schools and 13 states.  Daniel was the only representative from New Mexico at this year's TOC. 
    The TOC is an application only tournament.  To apply, debaters must have earned at least two finishes in the top 10 at national circuit Congressional Debate tournaments.  Daniel earned a seventh place finish at the Cal Invitational at UC Berkeley and a seventh place finish at the Yale Invitational.  Additionally, Daniel finished 12th at the Southwest Classic at Arizona State University.  Daniel is the third debater in our fifty-one year history as a team to qualify for this tournament.
    Daniel is also a semi-finalist  for the Presidential Scholar award and he will be attending UC Berkeley this fall. 
    Student Nominated for Presidential Scholarship  
    Congratulations Daniel!

  • Congratulations to Mitch Pfaff, our Hubba Bubba Junior Award Winner.
    Mitch was nominated for his kindness and compassion.  On one occasion Mitch went above and beyond, to go out of his way for an ailing student. He stepped up and stepped in without hesitation, to demonstrate his kind hearted nature.  He is an inspiration to us all.

  • Congratulations to Rueben Martinez, our Hubba Bubba Junior Award Winner.
    Rueben was spotted recently on a cold winter morning, as he came into the commons area.  Rueben graciously waited and held the door open for a young lady, as she approached the building.  Rueben isn't only concerned for himself, rushing in from the cold, but he did an unexpected kind deed, to make someone's day a little brighter.  It is that kind of nice gesture, often overlooked that help Los Alamos High School a great place and students like Rueben who take the time.

    Good job Rueben!
