Physical Science

In this course, you will have the opportunity to explore the characteristics of objects and materials that you encounter daily. You will gain an understanding of the nature of matter and energy, including their forms, the changes they undergo, and their interactions. You will develop an understanding of the fundamental laws of motion, knowledge of the various ways energy is stored in a system, and the processes by which energy is transferred between systems and surroundings. You will participate in regular in-person labs (with materials available at home or a school lab site), and experience experiments that are supplemented with other virtual reality experiences.
