Secaucus High School freshman Mackenzie Szabo was recently named one of four winners of the Citizen STEM Initiative Award.
The winners of the award, which is sponsored by The New Jersey Center for Teaching and Learning, were chosen after ninth graders statewide submitted videos of 90 seconds or less explaining the most interesting thing they learned in physics and why.
Szabo submitted a 68-second video explaining her favorite physics concepts, including acceleration and action-reaction forces. A student of Raphael Pastor’s class at Secaucus High School, Szabo noted how the class helped her better understand the physics of playing soccer.
The New Jersey Center for Teaching and Learning is an independent, non-profit organization.
