Kinetic Books Company is providing free physics classes for up to 1,000 high school students displaced by Hurricane Katrina. We will donate our comprehensive digital textbooks as well as virtual labs. The courses will be distance learning. Kinetic Books will pay for instructors to work with students over the Internet using videoconferencing and chat. The students will have access to curriculum and instruction that starts at general physics but goes up to the AP level B and C exam.

We are planning on using instructors with whom we've worked with before to teach the courses. However, we are currently in discussions with at least one displaced teacher about his potential role as an instructor, and would like to speak with other displaced teachers interested in participating.

We also are glad to supply curriculum to schools that have instructors but lack textbooks or lab equipment.

Students will need a Macintosh or Windows PC, and require Internet access for on-line grading and to communicate with the instructor.

We have previously conducted "physics boot camps" where students used Kinetic Books' digital textbooks and labs as their primary instructional tool to gain a head start in physics before the school started, with assistance from instructors provided by the company.

We recognize that dealing with the challenges of displaced students is on a far vaster scale. However, we believe the combination of the digital curriculum and the use of web-conferencing and chat can make for effective distance learning and communications between the students and teachers.

Whether the students will receive credit for their work is unclear at this time. The curriculum will be rigorous, up to AP standards if students wish, and we hope that school districts will support this initiative. As the situation regarding accredited coursework in Katrina's wake becomes more understood, we will work to comply with all known standards. If students can move back to their schools in 2006, we will facilitate that process in any fashion we can. At this point, Kinetic Books intends to provide instruction at the AP/C level as well as a "general" or "first year physics" level.

Students or administrators interested in participating in the program can contact Kinetic Books at displaced@kineticbooks.com. Instructors interested in working with us can contact us at instructors@kineticbooks.com.
