Course Description:

So how did Newton figure all this out? You can too - simply by checking the efficiency of a bouncing ball, converting energy so a can rolls back to you, taking a balloon to the moon, and doing a balancing high wire act on the tip of your finger. Of course you couldn't leave out racing bowls, balancing nails, and finding your center of gravity. Newton would not have been satisfied until he made beads jump out of a jar, put drops on a rope, had syringe wars, and welded water! All in a day's work!

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.
