Perhaps you’ve wondered why your face is upside down when you look in a spoon?

Wes Olson answers those questions and more in Physics 101 , the high school science curriculum by Westfield Studios.

It’s wonderful to simply pop in a DVD and let Mr. Olson take your students on a journey into God’s amazing universe. They will learn about Newton’s laws and the complex concepts behind quantum mechanics. He will teach you and your children about the physics of light, sound, heat, electricity, motion, and more.

You’ll also explore the life of famous scientists Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein.

We particularly appreciate the biblical worldview that undergirds the course.
