L-R: Pre-AP Physics students, juniors Micheala George and Louisa Montano, work past the final school bell on May 27, 2016, to finish a model home, a final project for their teacher, Mr. Rusuriye. Both students will return in the fall to take AP Physics as seniors from "Mr. R." who has been inspiring his students to pursue the study of Physics in college.
Physics is the "knowledge of nature,” the natural science that involves the study of matter and motion through space and time with related concepts such as energy and force. The main goal of physics is to understand how the universe behaves.
Thanks to a Popular Teacher, Bishop Dunne Students Pursue Studies in Physics
Bishop Dunne has a strong program in the physical sciences, as physics teacher Mr. Van Rusuriye can attest. Three of his graduating seniors this year plan to major in physics in college.
Graduate Jonathan Cuevas will study physics at the University of North Texas this fall. 2016 graduate Christian Mullin will attend the University of Maryland to study physics. Maryland has one of the best physics education research programs in the nation. Christian visited the university and met a friend of Mr. Rusuriye's who is in charge of that program.
Class of 2016 Valedictorian Jane Kelleher plans to be a theoretical physicist and will study physics at the University of Chicago, and later seek a doctoral degree.
Several recent Bishop Dunne graduates have also elected to study physics. Sophia Rana (2015) is majoring in physics at Loyola University, Chicago. Dan Le (2015) is studying math and physics at Stephen F. Austin State University, and Ryan Lane (2014) is studying physics at Dartmouth College
