I teach physics AND love superheroes. My mash-up? My Superheroes Physics class. The class is an absolute blast to teach!

This past week, I was fortunate enough to be spotlighted on the local news in their education segment. 11 Alive in Atlanta filmed and highlighted my physics class on Friday and the segment aired Monday morning.

My favorite part is that I was able to say “men in Spandex” on television. That and how many teachers do you know who can get away with wearing a Superman T to school — let alone on television?

Embedding doesn’t seem to be working properly, so you’ll have to click through to watch my physics class highlighted on 11 Alive news.

(I owe a huge debt of thanks to Dr. James Kakalios, author of The Physics of Superheroes, for the inspiration for the class as well as an excellent text from which to take examples.)
