Introduction to the concepts of Physics, staying with the concepts and away from math, because sometimes math unnecessarily distracts us from the usefulness of scientific thinking. Students interested in the math will be referred to appropriate resources, and are welcome to use office hours to dive in deeper.

Welcome to Earth Science—the study of the world around you. This course in Earth Sciences will include the study of Astronomy, Oceanography, Geology, and Meteorology, continuing where many life science courses leave off. We will ask and answer the big questions about how big things work, such as planets, world-wide currents, and volcanoes. Students will learn the ‘how’ and the ‘why,’ not just the ‘what’ of science in this course, because the history and future of these topics is just as relevant as the facts in textbooks.

Everyone knows what space is, but not many people know the history of our steps into it, or where we are today. In this course, we will spend our discussions talking about the early astronomers and philosophers, great scientific milestones, the Space Race, current technology, and government and commercial industry plans for the future, with an emphasis on where we are today. Students will take turns interacting with others to practice communicating both written and verbally what they’ve learned about our first steps into our solar system.
