Class experience

Students will learn scientific theory explaining many of nature's events and phenomena.
My name is Neil and I’ve spent a considerable amount of my life in preparation for Science Education. The result is a creative, interactive, and personalized approach to teaching the science of everyday phenomena that is part travelogue and part science lesson. I have 20 years of teaching experience as a professor. I hold a master's degree in the field of Condensed Matter Physics, and a Ph.D. in Theoretical and Applied Physics, with a specialization in Quantum Optics and Material Science. I am a published scientific author in several international journals, and I serve as an expert scientist on the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. I have traveled extensively to every continent on Earth, including all 50 States in the United States. The content of my lectures is meant to be a resource for my passion for teaching many fields of science, including Physics, Astronomy, Earth Science, Oceanography, Meteorology, Geology, and Physical Science. Anyone of any age who is curious about how our world works and our place in the Universe will be intrigued. 

From dogsledding in the Arctic winters of Sweden to mountaineering uncharted landscapes of Antarctica. From trekking the Amazon Jungle of Ecuador to scaling the Cliffs of Ireland. From spelunking the caves of China to mountain biking the world’s deadliest road on Bolivia’s "Death Road.” From camping under the midnight sun in the far north of Norway and Finland to open-ocean kayaking off the Shetland Islands in the Southern Ocean’s home of killer Orca whales. From days of crossing the Andes Mountains and jungles of Peru towards Macchu Picchu to tenting in the open plains of Africa’s Masai Mara in Kenya and Tanzania’s vast Serengeti. From ice-climbing the glaciers of Alaska and volcanoes of Iceland to drifting through glow-worm caves in the Southern Alps of New Zealand and diving into Australia's Great Barrier Reef. I bring my experiences from around the world to you in the comfort of your home.

Join me on an educational adventure of exploration around the world to see science at work in some of the most remote places on Earth.
There is no cost for any materials, as nothing is needed. Downloadable handouts are provided.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
This is a lecture-style class where I do most of the talking (student questions are always encouraged and welcomed). It is not a discussion forum type of class where students spend most of the class time sharing pre-learned facts and individual opinions about science. Please keep in mind that this is a multi-day class with four meetings. There are no refunds or credits given outside of what Outschool stipulates on its website (Limited Refund Policy). In the event your learner misses a live class, all lessons are recorded and available for viewing on Outschool.
