Physics

Is your child eager to learn more about how gravity works or what quarks do? EDMO coaches can help them deepen their love of physics! Through readings, fun exercises, and discussion, coaches can help students of any grade level or exposure to scientific concepts expand their understanding of matter, force, and energy. You can ask the coach to focus on a particular area that intrigues your child, or they can provide support on specific concepts covered in kids' schoolwork. Recommended materials: writing utensil and paper

Ken Der

Ken is thrilled to have the opportunity to inspire and challenge young minds while rocking the EDMO vibe! He is currently a sapling among the trees at Stanford University who hopes to one day grow into a (tall) civil engineer and city planner. On the side, he serves as the news director at campus radio station KZSU 90.1FM. He has spent the past two summers at EDMO's Alameda site, most recently as a Pro Maker Instructor, but his dedication to working with students began early on as the founder of a local mentoring program. Ken’s passion is guiding students along their quest in discovering their inner genius by leveraging their strengths and interests. You can often catch Ken in his natural habitat on board a city bus, or on the air talking about the news and interviewing fascinating people!
