Description

Class Experience

When I was a kid, science was one of my least favorite subjects, but as an adult, it is one of my absolute favorites.  I especially love Physics because it combines science and math.  Having a son really honed my love of physics as we started testing ALL of the laws of physics... sometimes on purpose, but sometimes purely by accident.

No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
Some parental assistance may be needed to help facilitate some of the experiments.
