Project Based Physics and Engineering Camp: Learn Physics by Building and Doing!
In this ongoing course students will learn and practice physics concepts by building and creating awesome projects.
US Grade 8 - 11
This class will teach basic physics concepts by having students build projects. Each week the students will be assigned a project and we will go over the physics behind the project. We will discuss the parameters that the students must operate within and safety concerns of each project as well as tips and materials necessary. Part of the class will also be spent analyzing the results of the previous challenge as well.Students will have a one page lab report to complete with each...
I have a Master's in Liberal Arts from St. John's College. I worked as Assistant to the Director of Laboratory Science at St. John's for 5 years and I have been a high school science teacher for the last 13 years. I have taught Physics to well over 1000 students.
Learners will have a project each week and an easy one page lab report where they will reflect on their experiment.
Scissors Tape Drinking Straws or Spaghetti Cardboard Balloons Glue Rubberbands An Egg Paper A Mousetrap A Battery Copper Wire Paper Clips Aluminum Can Marshmallows Microwave
After completing 8 weeks a report card can be issued upon request.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be asked to use scissors. If your student has difficulty with this I encourage you to provide parental supervision.
