Program Description

LIMITED TIME: Use code $25OFF at checkout to register without a registration fee.

In this discounted 10 hour package, students will learn how to apply human biology, chemistry, and physics/engineering concepts through hands-on experiments! They will be guided through science labs and experiments that they will conduct individually or in groups, which include but are not limited to building a helping hand model, calorimeters, hydraulic claws, rockets, aor whatever the student is interested in. materials will be provided. The goal of this package is to challenge yourself to learn new concepts and to understand how we can apply STEM concepts to our everyday lives.

This package is well suited for students who are interested in learning various STEM topics that will prepare them for high school science courses. This is a great learning opportunity for those who prefer to learn hands-on. We will be learning how scientists have studied human anatomy and biology to create human-like hands used as artificial prosthetics by creating a helping hand model. Biomedical Engineering and Design will be applied not only through building our own helping hand, but also through building rockets and hydraulic claws. We will also be dissecting a frog to familiarize ourselves with internal anatomy. In addition, we will be learning about thermochemistry and calorimetry by making our own calorimeters to measure chemical energy/calories in food, just as a chemist would do! This will be a challenging, yet fun course, and would be great for students in junior high to help prepare them for high school.

I am located in UC Irvine, 92697 and am willing to drive in and around that area. Feel free to reach out to me if you would like a different type of instruction , one-on-onr biology or chemistry tutoring or are interested in recieving a trial before your first session!
