This course is designed to teach the fundamental principles of chemistry and to prepare students for physical science classes on the high school and university level. The class stresses basic problem solving techniques and understanding the major theories in chemistry through written and laboratory work. Since chemistry is an experimental science, time equivalent to one period a week is spent in the laboratory. UC/CSU approved in the d – Laboratory Science category.

Price: $750

Physics

Course ID: S750

June 8-July 17, 8:00 AM-1:00 PM

The central theme of this UC approved lab science course is the inter-relationship between matter and energy.  Students will develop an understanding of the basic concepts of physics and how they relate to our everyday world.  Activities and projects will drive the learning of physics concepts.  One of these activities is a trip to Six Flags in Vallejo to study the structure of roller coasters and the effects of riding them. The cost of the field trip is included in the price of the course.  The time equivalent to one period per week or more is spent in the laboratory. UC/CSU approved in the d – Laboratory Science category.
