George School Field Studies

This course is an interdisciplinary, multi-sensory approach to examining the natural world found on the campus of George School. Through pen and paper and by “get your hands dirty” outdoor exploration, students immerse themselves in…

Applied Technologies in Botany

This course explores new and emerging tools for plant sciences, with a particular emphasis on botany and farming applications, such as plant breeding and production management. Robotic platforms gives students the ability to imagine, design,…

Intensive Physical Computing & Robotics

The pace of this course is parallel to Physical Computing & Robotics, but there is a difference in depth. Specifically, students in the Intensive class are required to solve about 25 percent more problems and…

Physical Computing & Robotics

This is a largely self-directed and flexible course that is project-oriented and driven significantly by student interests. During the three mods, students develop experience with basic programming in C, circuit design and breadboarding, LED lighting…

Introduction to STEAM

This single mod course introduces the students to some of the STEAM technologies used in many of our other courses in a fun and creative way. Students have an opportunity to create and fabricate on…

AP Physics C Electricity & Magnetism

This highly demanding 2-mod course follows the AP Physics C-Electricity & Magnetism syllabus, preparing students for calculus-based physics at the university level. Topics include electrostatics, conductors, capacitors, dielectrics, inductance, electric circuits, magnetic fields, and electromagnetism.…

AP Physics C Mechanics

This highly demanding 2-mod course follows the syllabus of the AP Physics C-Mechanics exam, preparing students for calculus-based physics at the university level. Topics include Newton’s laws of motion, work, energy, linear momentum, circular motion,…

IB HL Physics

This course prepares students for the International Baccalaureate Higher Level (HL) exam, as well as algebra-based physics at the college level. Substantial time is spent in the laboratory. Topics include mechanics, thermal physics, waves, electricity…

IB SL Physics

This course prepares students for the International Baccalaureate Standard Level (SL) exam, as well as algebra-based physics at the college level. Substantial time is spent in the laboratory. Topics include mechanics, thermal physics, waves, electricity…

Astrophysics

In this course, students explore the basics of astronomy and other subjects related to physics. We examine our solar system, stellar lifecycles, and the structure and creation of the universe. Topics will align with the…
