We're on a mission to expand children's horizons by teaching quantum physics, invention and design to kids. To meet the needs of families during the pandemic, we have expanded our live online Quantum Physics for Kids classes available on Outschool. These small-group classes are conducted via live videoconference (using Zoom) with trained STEM educators. Class sizes are kept small. They are highly interactive and fun!

Students learning about quantum physics in class

"The teacher was super engaging and catered the lesson to the specific interests of the students. Very much appreciated! My child is very much looking forward to more classes." - Carrie, parent of 10-year-old Quantum Physics for Kids student

Quantum Physics for Kids

Note: your first class on Outschool is free when you use one of the links below to register!

Magnetism and You (ages 8-12), one 50-minute session: Explore the amazing world of magnetism and how it affects all life on earth.

Electricity with Magnets? (ages 8-12), one 50-minute session: Explore one of the most important discoveries of modern technology: how to generate electricity using magnetic fields - the primary method of providing electricity worldwide!

Photons and You (ages 8-12), one 50-minute session: Explore the incredible science of photons - from visible light to the invisible parts of the electromagnetic spectrum, like Wifi and X-rays.

Atom Secrets (ages 8-12), one 50-minute session: Students are introduced to atoms, subatomic particles and the Periodic Table of Elements through engaging cartoon graphics and fun interactive activities. 

 

Coming in Fall 2020:

Quantum Physics Exploration: A 10-week course (meeting once a week) that introduces key concepts in quantum physics, including atoms, subatomic particles, magnetism, electricity generation, circuit basics, photons and the Periodic Table of Elements.  

Weekly STEM Invention Lessons: An ongoing weekly class that supports students to develop their own inventive ideas, with the option of participating in the Annual Invention Convention. Each class session features exploration of a historical inventor and development of quantum physics, science and technology discoveries that continue to impact the world today.  Students learn about the invention design process and get inspired by other young inventors. Next, students generate ideas, followed by prototyping and researching with the guidance of the instructor who mentors them through each stage of the invention process.

 

All our online classes are conducted via Zoom with a live video instructor who engages students in highly interactive explorations of science and technology, with a quantum physics focus.  

Note: due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our in-person afterschool enrichment classes at Madera Elementary School are on-hold until further notice.
