Natural Sciences

Building a Better Planet*

The threats to our environment are among today’s most pressing concerns. This course combines classroom discussions and outdoor excursions in its examination of the environmental challenges facing our planet. Is global warming a natural phenomenon, or is humanity creating a climactic catastrophe? How can fuel alternatives lead us to energy independence? Are we ready for solar, wind, geothermal, and nuclear energy? These are the issues we’ll try to power through!

Get Moving with Physics*

From the laws of Newton, to the theories of Einstein, to the insights of Stephen Hawking, physics is the science where all the action is – literally! Learn more about how physical bodies interact and unlock the mysteries of motion around us all the time. This course is designed to complement high school physics.

Please note: This course is also available as an intensive tutorial for students with specific academic needs.

*A supplemental supply or lab fee will apply.
