By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. (Hebrews 11:3, ESV)

Learn about the properties of waves, magnetism, sound, light, and many more as we explore God’s creation in the natural world. Each session will support the topic through hands-on application while students collaborate together to solve problems and design experiments.

Open to students in grades 6–12 (ages 11 and up).

Explore Physical Science is scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The Explore Days program is on a four-year rotating schedule. Each Explore Day includes a minimum of four hands-on, interactive sessions. The yearly topics are provided in the schedule below.

Please keep in mind that some of our activities are contingent upon weather.
