Science is not my strong point, but when I have a question, I want an answer! My six-year-old son is also full of questions. Minute Physics helps give answers that make sense in just a few minutes.

MinutePhysics is at the top of the heap when it comes to clear, fun, effective science lessons in easy-to-digest bites. It's also one of my absolute favorites.

I got started on the idea of Minute Physics after teaching a group as a Master’s student in Physics. I found that stick figures on a blank background to be the best way to take anyone from curious to understanding a new topic. 

I’m passionate about giving you the fastest way to learn a concept. This course is an effort to give you that sense of completion. From time to time I may also add exclusive content into the course. Enjoy!
