Chris Joon Ha Ahn is hardwired to be a Physicist.
A top Year 12 student at ACG Strathallan in South Auckland says Physics is his favourite subject because it is the base of all sciences. “Everything in the world is Physics,” he explains. “Even if I’m studying Biology, I’m relating it to Physics. For example, if I’m studying DNA, I see that it’s about codes, and I start to think about whether we could reproduce those codes using a computer, which then becomes Physics. That’s how my brain works.”
Year 11 students from ACG Strathallan have recently completed a one-day course designed to save lives.

It is a series of practical workshops aimed at changing the way young people think about road safety.
