My teen started a new book this morning." The Physics of Super Heroes, second edition by James Kakalios." I thought this would be a great introduction to a subject he is going to be working on in greater depth.
Author James Kaklios is a professor in the school of Astronomy and Physics at the University of Minnesota. He has also written another book entitled " The Amazing Story of Quantum Mechanics" that you can read more about from the link provided.
Some other sites you might be interested in that I will be exploring further regarding physics:
Newton's Three Laws of Motion
As we move further into the book, I will be sharing more resources and ideas for what we will be doing~
