Description

Class Experience

A detailed description of each session's learning goals is listed below:

Session 1: Hydrogen (1) to Neon (10) 
Students will learn about:
- Atoms and subatomic particles (protons, neutrons and electrons)
- The origin of atoms in the Big Bang, stars and supernovas
- Specific properties, forms and uses of Hydrogen, Helium, Carbon and Oxygen
- Unique molecular properties of water and carbon-based molecules that support formation of life
- Summary of common uses of Lithium, Beryllium, Boron, Nitrogen, Fluorine and Neon
- Electron orbitals and the importance of the valence (outer) electron shell
- Structure of the Periodic Table of Elements based on electron shell levels

Session 2: Sodium (11) to Argon (18)
Students will learn about:  
- Atoms and subatomic particles (protons, neutrons and electrons)
- Specific properties, forms and uses of Sodium, Magnesium, Aluminum, Silicon, Phosphorus, Sulfur, Chlorine and Argon
- Ionic and covalent molecular bonding 
- Electron orbitals and the importance of the valence (outer) electron shell
- Structure of the Periodic Table of Elements based on electron shell levels

Session 3: Potassium (19) to Krypton (36)
Students will learn about:
- Atoms and subatomic particles (protons, neutrons and electrons)
- Ionic and covalent molecular bonding 
- Specific properties, forms and uses of Potassium, Calcium, Gallium, Germanium, Arsenic, Selenium, Bromine and Krypton
- Introduction to the Transition Metals, focusing on Iron, Cobalt, Nickel and Copper, and their magnetic properties (ferromagnetism and paramagnetism)
- Electron orbitals and the importance of the valence (outer) electron shell
- Structure of the Periodic Table of Elements based on electron shell levels

Session 4: Rubidium (37) to Xenon (54)
Students will learn about:
- Atoms and subatomic particles (protons, neutrons and electrons)
- Ionic and covalent molecular bonding 
- Electron orbitals, suborbitals (s, p, d, f) and the importance of the valence (outer) electron shell
- Specific properties, forms and uses of Rubidium, Strontium, Indium, Tin, Antimony, Tellurium, Iodine and Xenon
- Introduction to the Transition Metals, including Palladium, Silver and Cadmium
- Structure of the Periodic Table of Elements based on electron shell levels, including the remaining elements in the Table
We're dedicated to introducing young students to the amazing world of quantum physics, invention & science research! We've been offering STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) classes and creating educational materials for students of all ages for over 15 years. We're excited to share this course content with more students through Outschool. 
No required homework assigned, but students will be given Review Handouts and suggestions for further exploration. 
The following learning materials are included with registration and posted as downloadable PDFs in the Classroom:
- Printable Atom Card PDFs for atomic elements 1-54 (Hydrogen to Xenon) 
- Printable Periodic Table PDF Handouts (simplified version & complete version)
- Printable Review Handout PDFs after each session
Please note: These PDF handouts are too large to be emailed, so please visit the Course Classroom to download them. Thank you!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress will be assessed through class participation and a fun, humorous quiz at the end of each session. 
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
