## Geniuses- 5th-7th Grade

##### DETAILS :

We will conduct 60 minutes session every week depending upon the Session you choose. Please check the Schedule Tab to see all the session options that you have. You can select the session that suits your schedule. The 60-minute session is divided into theory followed by a hands-on experiment.

Lessons are conducted in a live instructor-led learning environment, with abundant opportunities to explore and interact with their peers.
**For Spring 2023, classes will start from February 4th and will run through June 3rd(No class on February 18th and April 15th due to School break week). There will be total 16 sessions for the Spring Semester**

this semester we will cover topics from physics with focuses on mechanics, the part of physics that deals with force, motion, work and energy.

The primary topics covered in this class will include the following topics with hands-on activities:Your student will experience physics topics including:
