By the end of the course you will be able to

  • Explore the nature of heat and temperature.
  • Describe the types of radiation in the electromagnetic spectrum and understand their uses.
  • Investigate electrical and magnetic phenomena and build an electric motor.
  • Understand the effect of gravity on objects on the Earth and explain the motion of planets and satellites.
  • Explore the particles and forces inside the atom and describe the processes of radioactive decay, fission and fusion.
  • Use apparatus, measuring techniques and materials in the laboratory

Class format and activities

You will learn through practical activities, demonstrations, videos and discussion.

In order to ensure that you make the best possible progress on your course, you will have regular feedback from your tutor, in a constructive and supportive environment.
