Physics is more than just sending people to the moon. I was talking with an English professor who teaches at a Russian university. She commented that the physics she learned at school had been the most useful thing she had ever learned that she had never "used". Physics is useful for everyone, and helps us to understand the world around us.

The textbook for the homeschool group was Exploring Creation with Physical Science by Dr Jay Wile. The course involved practical, hands-on demonstrations including recreating Thomas Young's famous twin slit experiment using a laser and making a compass needle rotate by passing a curent through a nearby wire.
