Jon Lamoreux teaches physics and Advanced Placement physics B and C in the Upper School. “I feel privileged that I am able to share my enthusiasm about physics with young people who are open to learning,” says Lamoreux.
“I love the mini-motor project that we do in the introductory physics classes. Each student is challenged to construct a small motor using one battery, some paper clips, and a wire. It is a moment of true discovery that can be rewarded with deeper insights into the physical world.”
“I hope that students nurture a sense of wonder about the universe around them and do not become jaded or cynical as they grow older,” says Lamoreux. “It is my hope that students will gain a new perspective as curious citizens in an amazing universe.”
In addition to teaching he advises the Green Derby club and chairs the science department. Lamoreux enjoys movies, music and digital photography.
