Course Description:

What did you do today? Did you walk, talk, play, drive a car, breathe, lift, shop, pump gas, buy groceries, watch TV, listen to the radio, or use the computer? Well, you used forces in all of them, and everything else you did! Nothing moves without a force. Have Forces; Will Travel could be your motto! In this course you will explore what forces are, what energy is and how it is converted, how forces get transferred, and find out why and how things turn and move. You will get to build a pyramid out of newspaper, measure how tough an egg can be, spin pennies, design pendulums, make a hammer "float", create your own bouncing ball, and remind all of us why we need to wear our seatbelts.

Seela Science specializes in taking an individual state’s Science Standards and customizing a K-8th curriculum to match completely what each teacher is mandated to teach in that state. We can do this because we have written over 800 activities, covering all the science concepts and teaching levels. These are kept individually in our curriculum library. This gives us the freedom to customize to the needs of an individual state.
