Meet BreeI walked into AP Physics C Mechanics in high school having no idea what physics was. I signed up for the class because it was the next class I was “supposed” to take. My school offered regular or AP Physics and my counselor said I should do the latter purely based on grades. I was never asked if I was interested in studying science, she just wanted my transcript to “look good” for college.
