A Physics Course for the Whole Family
The course will be taught live from Sept 11, 2023 through Dec 13, 2023 with three lessons per week. Two of the weekly lessons are taught as interactive livestreams with a moderated chat. The third weekly lesson is pre-recorded.
Students who are able to join the live sessions have the option of watching each Monday and Wednesday at either
- 11:00 am EDT (8:00 am PDT) or
- 1:00 pm EDT (10:00 am PDT).
The third weekly session will be a project or lab exploration to be completed before the next week.
All students will have access to the recordings of each lesson. Asynchronous or self-paced students can also participate in the poll questions when watching the recordings.
Each lesson comes with printable notes pages and practice problems designed to reinforce the ideas of each lesson.
We recommend watching the lesson with a printed copy of the notes. Encourage your student to use the polls or simply answer the questions out loud. Use the answer key to evaluate what they learned afterward, or, if they are a self-directed learner, they can use it themselves to double-check their learning.
We are in the process of designing Physics 2: Electromagnetism for spring 2024.
Frequently Asked Questions
When does the course start and finish?
Can we do the course on our own schedule?

What about supply lists or supply boxes?
Our summer travel plans might not be compatible with us assembling and shipping supply boxes. We hope to have an update soon.
Will there be a follow-up course?
Yes. In spring 2024, we'll run Physics 2: Electromagetism.
Are there scholarships available?
Yes, there are a limited number of scholarships that will be given out April 15, 2023. Click here to apply.
How much math do students need to know to take the course?
Any middle school student could enjoy the course, but they'll get a lot more out of it if they have a solid foundation in math. Students who have completed our Grade 6 Math course or Pre-Algebra will be ready. Look at page 6 of the notes preview to see more details of the type of math skills students should have.

The doodle notes were excellent, and provided a good introduction for my daughter to guided note-taking. We would 100% recommend these courses.

Yours was my 13 year old's favorite class! The guided notes were fun and engaging, and I was amazed at how much material he learned and retained.
