PHYSICAL SCIENCE CURRICULUM

With the advanced version, the student builds all of the projects in the standard version (included with this course) plus three more. These projects are specifically designed to allow the student to apply in a hands-on manner the more advanced lessons they are learning. The student uses the ten projects in the majority of experiments/activities
