Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Matt Bay
I have been teaching science in the Ralston school district since 2015. As an educator, I am dedicated to furthering my own education. As a result, I am in the process of completing my master's degree coursework in science education. Before teaching, I worked in retail, spending time as the youth shoe and cold weather footwear specialty shop manager for two years before stepping down as I pursued my bachelors in secondary education. I am married and love spending time with my wife Kinsey and step-sons Liam and Arik as often as I can. I enjoy cycling, rock wall climbing, and Husker athletics. It is my goal to learn something every day and I strive to share that passion with my students.

The map of Physics
A quick overview of the branches of Physics. The topics we cover demonstrate the basics, but the world of physics is much deeper than that. This will give you an idea of all that physics encompases and hopefully make you wonder.
PhET Animation Website
PhET activities are an excellent way to play with the principles of science. Often times we will use these simulations to look at physics principles and explore the relationship between variables. This link will point you towards the main site where you can play with science and explore the physical world.
The Physics Classroom
This is a website with tutorials, activities, and explanations to help enhance your knowledge of the topics in physics. Every subject that we learn is covered here and you can use this link to see the overview.
