Physics in Your Future.
This booklet is designed to introduce young people, their parents, teachers, and advisers to various fields of and possible career opportunities in physics. The colorfully illustrated booklet, aimed particularly at junior high school students, highlights the work and experiences of several young physicists. Although physics is not usually taught until the last year of high school, the necessary mathematical preparation is decided at the junior high school level. Therefore, this booklet seeks to inspire junior high school students, who might otherwise avoid technical subjects, to study all the mathematics and science courses they can. (JN)
