About This Course

Explore the fascinating science of physics and study the principles and laws that drive the natural world. 

Physics can be a complicated subject, but that doesn't mean that it must be boring and difficult to understand. Veteran filmmaker Wes Olson will take you on a journey into the incredible universe created by God, from Newton's laws to the complex concepts behind quantum mechanics. An exciting, visually rich experience, Physics 101 is designed specifically for ages 15 years old and up*.  

Once you have finished this course, you will feel at ease discussing relativity, explaining the correlation between energy, mass and the speed of light, and perhaps, even Schrodinger's cat.
