Rob Przedwiecki


Rob Przedwiecki has taught all levels of Physics through his career, both at the high school and collegiate levels. He holds his undergraduate degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Computing and Systems Engineering and his graduate degree from Nova Southeastern University in Computing Technology in Education. In 2013, he decided to flip his classroom in order to spend more class time directly working with the material in the form of problem sets, laboratory experiences, and activities. This became “A Gross of Physics”, a series of 144 video lectures spanning an entire introductory Physics course. He is excited to apply that skillset here at DAO and expand the online learning environment in even more ways.

Rob lives in upstate New York in the small town of Galway. His house happens to be the former one room schoolhouse for the town, before they built the current schools a few miles down the road. When he is not teaching Physics, he will be found playing guitar and hiking the many nature trails in the area (not necessarily at the same time). He will also be searching for and playing any and every boardgame that he can find. His love of Physics stems from playing board games as a kid, solving problems and maximizing strategies within a fixed and finite ruleset. From his perspective, there is little difference between problem solving in a game, and problem solving in the science classroom. Science is finding out what the rules of the "game" are first. Engineering is then using those rules to solve the "problems" that we, as a society, want to solve. He is excited to work with many future scientists and engineers, helping them first learn the rules and then solving many problems together.
