Physics: “Beyond a mere observation”

Do you understand the physics behind an apple falling from a tree? It seems impossible, but the legend is that Sir Isaac Newton did. He certainly went beyond mere observation and learned how wonderful the world of unseen physics is. In that world, there is much more than an apple falling off a tree. Would you like to explore the world of physics through simple demonstrations? If your answer is yes, then this class is for you. The topics include dynamics, electromagnetism, optics, and biophysics.
