Physics Students Learn from HP Technical Staff

Mr. Barry Maskas (parent of Chris Maskas '19), joined Mr. Kublbeck's Physics' classes on Tuesday, May 8 to discuss his experiences in the technology industry. Mr. Maskas, a senior member of the Technical Staff at Hewlett Packard Enterprises, touched upon the challenges of the transmission and storage of data and information in the 21st Century. Mr. Maskas displayed samples of fiber optic cables and discussed their advantages in relation to efficiency, cost, speed, and interconnectivity. His presentation was an excellent way to bring closure to the recent topics of Electricity and Optics covered in Mr. Kublbeck's classes.
