San Francisco Bay Area In-Person Pods

We'll come to you and run a class!

What The Course Looks Like

This is a full year course. We'll meet 30 times, for 2-hours, once per week. Plan on about 1 hour of work outside of class time.  

The year is broken into six, 5-week units. Each 5-week unit looks has all of this...

  • 5 in-person class sessions, 2-hours each, led by Michael

  • 10 labs (so do the math, this is 60 labs per year!)

  • 10 sets of write-up questions, guiding students to make observations and build theories

  • 5 chapters of guiding videos and readings

  • 5 problem sets to check understanding

  • 5 sets of resource extension links so students can bone up, review, and research a wide set of related topics.

Lab supply kits are provided! ... the only way to do science right! (real equipment, not just plastic stuff)

**We only run courses for self-organized groups. If you have a  group of at least 8 middle schoolers, reach out via the form below and we can discuss setting up a class

Online Pods - Anywhere

We'll send each student a lab kit and run an online class!

What The Course Looks Like

Everything is the same as above except for two differences

  1. We meet once per week for 90 minutes to discuss results from previous labs and do another lab together.

  2. During the week students run one lab on their own (or with other students), study the articles and videos on the course platform, and submit hypotheses and lab write-ups. This typically takes 2 hours of work outside of class time.
