Description:

"Physics First" is a movement that encourages high schools to offer a full-year physics course to ninth-graders, before they take chemistry and biology. Also sometimes called “early high school physics,” the “physics-chemistry-biology (PCB)” sequence, or the “cornerstone to capstone (C-to-C) program,” Physics First has been gaining momentum as an organized movement of educators and physicists since around 1990, although the concept of teaching physics to ninth-graders goes back several decades before that. Nobel Prize-winning physicist Leon Lederman, Physics First’s most prominent proponent, estimates that around 2,000 US high schools have now adopted some version of the program for at least some of their freshmen.
