    Traditionally one of the most difficult high school science courses, this academic one week program will make learning the subject of physics more accessible and give you the edge to master your high school Physics class.

    Some of the most challenging concepts will be previewed in lectures and principles will be illustrated in experiments. Great for students looking for that edge to help them excel in their fall Physics courses.

    Physics can be exciting. Come explore the mysteries of how nature behaves.  Students will have fun learning about energy and matter, and how they work together; they will investigate natural phenomena from the entire universe down to the tiniest pieces of the atom. They will discuss some of the most brilliant scientists and their contribution to our world.

    From Newton’s law through Einstein’s theory of relativity to the current work by Stephen Hawking on black holes and the Big Bang, physics can be fascinating for students with a head start. Get an edge this summer!

    This one-week summer program is designed for teens interested in receiving tutoring as preparation for fall courses.
