Overview

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.

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. 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.

Cost and Session Information

Physics Edge will run from August 3-7, 2020.

Testimonials

'...I enjoyed learning a large amount of information which gave me an in depth view of the science of physics. I like that I was able to learn about many topics in physics that I may experience in class. Mr. Kafka was a great teacher and he was able to thoroughly answer all questions with great detail and clarity.'
