This is an introductory physics class aiming to introduce concepts in mechanics. Students will learn fundamental concepts on motion, energy, and much more. Physics helps us understand the everyday interactions of energy and matter in the world around us. There will be labs and demos to inspire interest in physics and show its applications in real life. No prior experience in physics is required, but knowledge of Geometry concepts is recommended.
