This is our catalog of courses. We will occasionally adjust the course listing to reflect the addition of new courses and the retirement of others.
Continue studying the matter and forces God used to create our universe! Students enjoy a “flipped classroom” with assignment questions and ideas brought to the LIVE class.

Prerequisite: Physical Science, Part One
Suggested grade level: 7th to 9th grade

This is a ‘flipped’ class. Students will be required to watch the recorded lecture before coming to the live class. The live class will be a discussion (question and answer) format based on the lecture.
We will be studying the matter and forces that God used to create our universe. Completion of this course (both parts 1 and 2) will be excellent preparation for high school Chemistry and Physics.
