What's Included

Is what you see on the screen real science, or just movie magic? Just because a character may have super powers doesn't mean he or she can violate the fundamental laws of the universe! In this summer course learn the real science behind the screen magic: Newton's Laws, Gravity, Relativity, and be able to spot embellishment. As you study the cutting edge science, get better at making sarcastic comments about these movies: Gravity, Interstellar, and superhero movies, such as Avengers and X-Men, and some classic Road Runner cartoons.
