Waves Course Details

Energy travels in waves. Light travels through space in waves that can be seen from Earth. Liquid waves travel across water to crash into continents with enough energy to wear down rocks. Sound waves travel through air connecting us with each other. In this 3-week session learners will investigate and explore how energy travels!

Each 3-week session will be filled with hands-on activities and investigations. There will also be some activities for students to do outside of class while they learn about the fascinating topic.

Waves is one of the 4 sessions in the Elementary Level Science Series Season 4. Each session of the Elementary Level Science Series meets 3 times over a span of 3 weeks. Each 3-week Session includes important, foundational science topics, scientific modeling, focused definitions of core science terms and phrases all in an engaging, high-interest format that meet important Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

Each Session of the Elementary Level Science Series has hands-on labs that have been thoughtfully paired with written materials. Materials will be emailed 2-weeks before the class meets with guided readings, materials list, lab instructions as well as suggestions for extra activities and how to use the topics and material for project-based unit studies. During the live sessions, students can ask questions as we go over the material. Then we will work on an lab/activity as a class. Classes will be taped for anyone unable to attend a class.

Course materials will be staggered depending on the grade level, science acumen of the student.

* Lab materials will be inexpensive and easy to obtain.

These are hands-on get up and move around, science classes that are fun & educational.
