In teacher Michael Stanley's physical science classes at Mason County High School in Maysville, theoretical and applied physics meet multimedia technology. Throughout the year, students learn to use the Internet to research, design and eventually build a physical system such as a bicycle or a racing scull. They also use spreadsheets to compare experimental and expected outcomes, and create individual Web pages that are compiled into a final document published on the school's server. He uses PowerPoint presentations, CD-ROM tutorials, and e-mail to supplement his own teaching. Mr. Stanley has twice been a presenter at the Kentucky Technology Conference, demonstrating the use of computers for physics experiments.
