Join us for a year of Physical Science for middle schoolers!
This course is designed to serve as a solid foundation for the study of
the Physical Sciences. Topics to be investigated are phases of matter, force and motion, work, simple machines, conservation and transformation of energy, heat, waves, sound, light, electricity and magnetism.
The role of the student in this course is to develop inquiry and problem solving skills
within the context of scientific investigation. Students will apply what they learn to everyday
situations by conducting investigations and formulating and testing their own hypotheses.
Ages: 11+ years
9/27, 10/4, 10/11, 10/18, 10/25
This is a year long course, but students may join at 5 week intervals.

Instructor: Kathleen Duncan is a homeschool teacher with over nine years' experience. She was homeschooled herself from kindergarten all the way through twelfth grade and truly loved it. She has an enormous amount of respect for the homeschooling community and is honored to be a part of it. Kathleen attended California State University Fullerton, earning a bachelor's degree magna cum laude. Her initial plan was to teach public high school, but by then she was already working with homeschoolers and was hooked. She now works with students of all ages and in nearly every subject, both one on one and in class settings.
This is a drop-off class, but as always, parents are invited to stay and observe.
To sign up one child, please RSVP as yourself; to sign up two children, RSVP +1 guest, etc.
If you are not using Sky Mountain funds, please bring payment to the first day of class or pay online.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
