Online Science Classes!

Our family LOVES Science Jim! In fact, we've registered for the classes below for this fall!

Each class consists of 30-60 minutes of a live video web-broadcast. All you need is a Mac or PC with speakers and a broadband DSL or cable internet connection to take part in the class. There is no need to download any software. Each class will be recorded so if you miss a class, or would like to review the material, you can watch at your convenience. It's like two-way television!
