Scientific novices: this is for you! Why do we wear seat belts? Why do we wash clothes and dishes in soap? Why does my glass of ice water get wet on the outside? Does warm water freeze faster than cold water? Can I really separate egg yolks from egg whites using an empty water bottle? In physics terms, we will be studying inertia, projectiles, pressure, changes of state, and solubility. In FUN terms, we will be doing lots of experiments to see how physics affects us every day.
