Not only can the Parkland High School senior pick up the slack, the physics whiz can literally teach the class.

And, teach the class is exactly what she did May 23.

“Nina is one of the top students I’ve ever had,” Parkland physics teacher Sean Flueso said. “She’s extremely personable and will do a great job in presenting.”

Cao had the idea to lead a class on physics to her peers earlier this year.
