I hear and I forget.
I see and I remember.
I do and I understand.

Curiosity is an intrinsic feature of all animals and the major tool for development. Human beings have accumulated a vast amount of information about the laws of nature; and yet nature is so complex that many questions remain unanswered.
The major goal of the HOW NATURE WORKS Initiative is to acquaint the young generation with the fundamental laws of nature and give them minimal tools for development and research.
Modern science is a wonderland with a foreign language so diverse that no a human being is capable of learning of all its definitions and notations, and the earlier one begins the journey - the easier is the way.
The online curriculum is on the physics of nature. It does not require previous education and does not replace school curriculum; it is of basic ideas and proceeds into unsolved problems.
It is designed as an online help for motivated children of ages 10+ ready to acquire basic scientific ideas (especially if their parents or grandparents help them and set up an experimental laboratory in their garage or home and would be ready for experimentation and discussions). That's why parents are specially invited to participate.
The curriculum uses visual educational materials from open sources as the ground for discussions during the meetings.
Building personal experimental setups is encouraged and guided.
Children and their parents living not far away from Boistfort WA are invited for experimentation in the laboratory of the initiator.
Basic Laws of Nature

Stated clearly
and many others

The general procedure for physics is setting up an experiment, measuring and working with obtained data, and the final step is coming to a conclusion. This is my final goal: to teach the participants to follow this procedure after we finish the course.
How long can it take? I don't know. Everything depends on the participants.
