Here are all the topics covered by the e-Science program. Some topics take only a couple of weeks to complete, while others can take several months. Remember, your own goals for your child’s science learning combined with your schooling philosophy will determine what is right for you. In any case, there are hundreds and hundreds of activities, experiments and projects, so you shouldn’t have trouble finding good stuff to work on and learn from!

If you have any questions about what units you have access to, please contact us. See a unit or two you’d like to do but don’t yet have access to? Just drop us a note and we’ll arrange special access to it for you. You’re the reason we’re here and I really want you to really get all you can out of e-Science.

Overview of e-Science?

There are 18 key scientific principal, 10 of which kids must master before they hit college.

The Scientific Method

Tips & Tricks
Learn how to formulate scientific questions and investigate answers methodically like as a real scientist.

Unit 1: Mechanics

Force,Gravity and Friction
Newton did his early work on his Three Laws of Motion, which still hold true today.

Unit 2: Motion

Velocity and Acceleration
A crash-course in projectile motion as you throw, swing, zoom, drop, roll, and tangle with Newton's laws.

Unit 3: Matter

Atom, Density, and Solids
Atoms are impossibly small yet absolutely vital for all matter and all interaction between matter.

Unit 4: Energy 1

Pulley and Levers
Discover the magic of mechanical advantage as you build simple machines to lift, pull, and hoist.

Unit 5: Energy 2

Potential and Kinetic Energy
Learn about the two categories of energy by building roller coasters, bobsleds, cannons, and catapults.

Unit 6: Sound

Vibrations and Resonance
Investigate sonic wave energy by creating air horns, buzzing hornets, and harmonicas.

Unit 7: Astrophysics

Astronomy, Particle Physics, & Relativity
Discover the cosmos by building telescopes, particle detectors, tracing comets, mapping the sun, and more!

Unit 8: Chemistry 1

Molecules, Atoms & Chemical Kinetics
Shake up solutions, grow crystal farms, cross-link polymers, & phase shift heat & ice reactions.

Unit 9: Light

Light Waves, Photons, & Lasers
Investigate the wild side of light energy that has baffled scientists for over a century.

Unit 10: Electricity

Circuits and Robotics
Spark together circuits, burglar alarms, and build real robots from junk!

Unit 11: Magnetism

Permanent Magnets and Electromagnets
What is that invisible force, and why is it there? Why are some things magnetic and others not?

Unit 12: Alternative Energy

Solar Cells, Wind Power, & Fuel Cells
Construct solar batteries, wind turbines, crystal radios, reversible fuel cells, and bio energy sources.

Unit 13: Thermodynamics

Temperature and Heat
Heat is the movement of thermal energy, which causes ice cubes to melt and storms to thunder.

Unit 14: Electronics

Breadboards, PCBs, Analog & Digital Circuits
Create wireless FM transmitters, door alarms, scrolling clocks, police sirens, and robot sensors.
