How Things Work

Teacher: Allison Shiff

Description
: Have you ever looked around you and wondered how does that happen? Do you know how electricity is generated and transported? How an image in one place in the world can be seen in another in real time? How instruments create music? Why ice is the only solid that floats in its liquid form.  Why the sky is blue but sunsets are red? Why ice skating or bicycling is possible?  How do people of different weights balance on a seesaw? These are just a few of the possible topics discussed in this hands-on science course.  Students will explore theory and then look at practical examples of science in action.
