NEXUS Physics

The NEXUS/Physics project was originally created as part of the National Experiment in Undergraduate Science Education (NEXUS) funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in response to national studies that encouraged the development of new programs for biology majors and pre-health care students. The project was developed beginning in 2010. The class has been delivered at the University of Maryland since 2011 and has been the starting point of classes at other colleges and universities throughout the US.
