Guided Learning

With the help of Dr. Enrique Gomez, Associate Professor of Physics & Astronomy at Western Carolina University, we have four instructional videos in Spanish on our YouTube. We recommend this resource for bilingual students; students who have the ability to read closed captioning; or if an adult is helping a student use the kit.

Click on each individual image below to view Spanish-language instruction videos on how to use the kit activities.
