Welcome to Dr. Halverson's Web Page, which has...
----- Information for my* students at Stern MASS, a fabulous high school on the campus of Cal State LA.
----- Information for Halverson’s Physics and STEM students.
----- My resume, my publications and other information about myself..

*My status at Stern MASS has changed. I have left regular teaching but I am still running the Engineering Club Thursdays and Fridays after school.
I am now teaching Physics 2AG (introductory Physics) at Mount San Antonio College, aka Mt SAC.

The Mt SAC Physics and Engineering Department is GREAT! Students get a solid academic foundation in Physics and get to use it right away doing fabulous engineering projects. I just saw the student built rocket that got up to 11000 feet altitude.

Physics and Engineering is co-located with Mt SAC’s Earth Sciences and Astronomy department. So you can use your physics knowledge learning about the universe and/or how the Earth was formed, and where to look for valuable resources.

Update: The Stern MASS Engineering Club telescope WORKS! This picture of the moon was taken by Adrian De La Torre using his phone, pointing through the telescope’s eyepiece. We’re working on a handy phone holder to make it easy to take pictures like this. I personally want good pictures of Jupiter and Saturn.

Picture from my Physics class, Fall 2014. How often do you see students hammering their teacher?
My head was protected by inertia. Newton's 1st Law.
