Learn Science and Chemistry

• From the laws of motion first formulated 300 years ago by Sir Isaac Newton to the latest marvels of contemporary genetic research, learning about physics and chemistry allows you to share the joy of humanity's greatest ongoing adventure of discovery and exploration.

• From the laws of motion first formulated 300 years ago by Sir Isaac Newton to the latest marvels of contemporary genetic research, learning about physics and chemistry allows you to share the joy of humanity's greatest ongoing adventure of discovery and exploration.

To understand how the universe works on all levels, you have to understand something about physics and chemistry. Physics is, as many scientists consider, the fundamental science—explaining how the universe behaves at every scale, from the subatomic to the extragalactic. And chemistry rules our entire world, from the air we breathe to the clothing we wear.

Make Sense of Physics and Chemistry

With our exciting collection of physics videos and online physics courses, you’ll finally have the opportunity to make sense of these two thrilling branches of science. Thrilling branches—and also, for many, intimidating as well.

But when you learn physics online, you’ll be able to explore physics and chemistry at your own pace, with dozens of illuminating lectures that explain the seemingly unexplainable and that make the hidden corners of these sciences accessible for anyone with a willingness to learn.

From college-level physics and chemistry to intriguing topics and concepts rarely discussed in the classroom, most of our amazingly comprehensive courses require nothing more advanced than high-school math. Our physics courses make essential concepts crystal clear with the help of:

  • Logical reasoning
  • 3-D animations
  • Augmented reality sets
  • Review questions and practice problems
  • Video footage from chemistry and physics labs
