This fantastic science course is being run by Ben from Fizzics Education, in association with Coral Shaw, a home schooling mum with a science background. Ben is a scientist and trained teacher whose enthusiasm for science infects children and adults alike.
The senior course will cover atomic structure, valance, chemical bonding, the periodic table, the 6 basic chemical reaction types, acids and bases, exo/endothermic reactions, and balancing equations. The junior course content will cover similar areas in an age appropriate way.
In order to get the most out of the course, participants should be prepared to complete a homework sheet each week provided by Ben. At the completion of the course, participants will receive a BOS style outcomes and indicators report sheet. This course goes way beyond kitchen bench science, and will give senior participants a chance to conduct real experiments with real chemicals. NB for insurance purposes it is necessary for children under 12 to enrol in the primary course.
