Grades: Elementary School: (Difficulty level varies per age group). Academically, This course continues where Physics Fitness Bootcamp I left off.  Our classes have been a favorite staple that blends in the skill building ideals of science education, personal training, and athletic development all at the same time!

Benefits for the program

  • Customized routines that simulate the laws of physics and science education that you're trying to learn 

  •  Students get  introduced to all the basic the laws of physics through the power of seeing their own kinematics perform the motions.

  •  Get a GREAT exercise routine supplied by a physics professor and professional personal training!

  • Learn without worrying about complicated word problems, hard tests,  and hard math

  • New topics covered: energy/sports nutrition basic particle physics/ fundamentals of chemistry and health and wellness (see below for details)

 

Fitness Physics II runs complete with a sports nutrition element.  It doesn't just teach you how to be a better student athlete, it teaches you HOW to live well.  In essence, this course is a combination of learning classical physics, particle physics, SPORTS NUTRITION, kinematics, athletic development and even holistic wellness! Because of its diversity, students finally learn to appreciate how powerful having a physics education can really be, for the justification of all these concepts unifying together can be made possible through exploring physics!

 Physics Fitness Bootcamp II

5th - 8th Grade 

 This is a condensed course  one week long (5 hours a day for 5 days) designed to introduce the concepts and principles of Physics.  Students study a wide variety of topics in Physics that are components of the major themes of “energy and matter”.  Topics include: energy, work, conservation of energy, an introduction to particle physics, atoms, and ultimately learning reality from the ground up until we get to chemistry.    Professional level personal training activity and hands-on instruction, exercise routines, and physical games are your labs!  Activities will allow a student to experience a firsthand account classical physics by using their physical abilities in athletics and sports games as lab  as lab activities. Below is a typical example of the curriculum (scheduling may vary depending on time of day):
Topics covered:
  • Energy: What is energy? (Topic 1)

  • Work (Topic 2, etc)

  • Mechanical energy

  • Types of mechanical energy: kinetic, potential, rotational energy

  •  chemical energy: fuel/food.  Importance of food and why it pays to eat properly

  • Natural organic diet recommendations and meal plans

  • Dissecting what energy really is

  • brief intro to strings and quantum fields

  • basics of particle physics: quarks and leptons

  • protons, neutrons, electrons, the basics of an atom

  • how electromagnetic forces between atoms work and make up what we call chemistry
