Description

Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of the following Physics concepts:
Newton's Laws of Gravity, Dark Matter, Circular motion, orbital mechanics, The Drake equation, General Relativity, Center of Mass, Kepler's laws of orbits, gravitational lensing, electromagnetism, speed and acceleration, light, momentum, angular momentum, Space-Time, Plasma and electricity.
 I have found that my students who are Star Wars fans love this class.  They think it's great that they are introduced to science concepts from a unique perspective.  I love both Star Wars and Physics so this is a dream class for me.  
Each week, students will be assigned a chapter from the Physics of Star Wars book that they will need to read before the scheduled class.
Students will need to purchase "The Physics of Star Wars" by Patrick Johnson, PHD.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will be assessed through teacher observation of class discussions.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This course does address topics such as weaponry used in Star Wars.
