IN-Person Class

Use The Force


May the force be....understood.

Learn about physics and make simple machines to help you understand and use the force!

Q. What did Obi-Wan say at the rodeo? A. Use the horse, Luke!



How can we move objects? By using the FORCE! Young padawans learn all about forces (friction, pressure, gravity, push/pull), motion (speed, velocity, acceleration, momentum), and magnetism in this physics class while making model pod racer tracks, exploring magnets, and building simple machines! Taught by: Princess Leia

Some interest in Star Wars is certainly a bonus, but if you don’t love it already, this class might convert you… There are a ton of fun building projects and challenges in this class mixed in with real science and science fiction! Any nerd’s dream!

  • contraptions to experiment with forces
  • noodley tracks for your pod racer to zoom through twists, turns, and loops!
  • model space ships that fly in our wind tunnel
  • totally real light sabers (Take these home! Note: Nerding is not responsible for anything cut in half by the totally real light sabers.)
  • Motion and Velocity – Moving Objects using The Force
  • Gravity and Pressure – Launch Millennium Falcon
  • Isaac Newton – The First Jedi
  • Motion with Air – Flying Disks and Ships
  • Simple Machines and Friction- Pod Racer Tracks
  • Magnetism – The Invisible FORCE
  • Science vs. Science Fiction – Star Wars vs. Space Exploration
  • Also a bit of robotics, because of course we need to drive our little droid BB8s around…
Our Little Nerd classes for grades 1-3, are engaging and exciting and vary greatly in content and structure, but in some form there is always direct instruction from the teacher, guided practice, and independent or small group work with help and support from peers and staff. We usually begin the day with a team building activity and move into our first lesson. Next is a hands-on activity or project. Halfway through the class, kids will take a brief recess and snack break. A second lesson follows break and the kids will do another project/activity or continue one they were working on. Bottom line: It’s hands-on, interactive, fun learning.

Class is 3hrs each day, so bring a snack for break time. Also, bring your own refillable water bottle. Don’t have one? Add our Nerding water bottle to your order and pick up on first day of class!


Your nerd will build and discover like these nerds have.

Mrs. Almendarez (Jedi Knight)

Young padawans, you must join me in the quest to learn the secrets of the force(s) and use them to defeat the Dark Side! (and also build awesome stuff) May the Force(s) be with you.
