Project description

This student coded a Physics Calculator website! The website not only takes a user's input and provides the answers to a physics equation, but also shows the steps involved in arriving at the solution. By adding multiple equations and generalizing the code, the website can be modified with more equations and concepts in the future.

Project outcome

An online physics calculator.

Student review

The most valuable part about this program was that it helped me learn how to create my own website from scratch and to develop my computer science skills. Working with my mentor, Justin, allowed me to ask for help from an expert whenever I was stuck on a problem. Justin was very supportive and knowledgable on the topic and was able to guide me through the entire process.
