Physics Club

10:00am-11:30am Thursdays     Ages 12-16

Physics Club was started this term by two students who loved their physics class so much they wanted to keep it going when their teacher could do the class anymore. With help of Ekaterina, who taught the first term, they mapped out the guidelines of their independent study exploration. They club follows the PhysicsQuest story-based activities and will be solving mysteries while applying physics concepts. This club gives young minds the chance to work on physics experiments with real world application, while giving them the opportunity to practice team building, self motivated study and team building. The focus for this term will be Spectra 6 Quantum Leap.
