Jamie JohnsonHost: Jamie (BSc (Hons), MSc, PGCE) is a Science teacher who is passionate about breaking down complex topics into digestible bites for students.

Every time we apply a force to move an object, or we experience a force on ourselves, energy is transferred, and work is done.

In this class, students will focus on these key ideas of what happens when a force makes something move, and how we can classify appliances or scenarios as more or less powerful based on the rate of energy transferred.

This class is useful in establishing an overview of the topic before building more specific knowledge and examples in future classes.
