BCYC Immersion Physics Track

Students in a lab

  • Session 1: June 16-21, 2024

In our BCYC Immersion Physics program for high school students, teens will receive some of the same hands-on physics and astronomy laboratory experiences that students in Benedictine College's undergraduate Physics and Astronomy programs receive. Students will learn how the complexities of God’s universe can be explored and understood using the tools of experimental science. They will also gain the skills needed to make precise physical measurements in order to examine the laws of motion, heat, and optics, and to analyze astronomical images.
