About Science Joy Wagon and its online lessons in physics and chemistry

The Chemistry Zone and the Physics Zone are products of Science Joy Wagon and use the power of multimedia to teach difficult concepts. They are not meant to replace a good textbook or replace a course, it is meant to support either one. It picks up where the limitations of paper leave off.


The lessons are designed with two purposes in mind. They are meant to be used by students directly, or meant to be used by teachers as they present difficult concepts to their students. Science Joy Wagon specializes in making content clear by using animations and graphics that just can't exist on the page of a book.

The "members only" lessons on these sites are created by Steve Wirt, a New York State teacher certified in Physics and Chemistry with a degree in instructional design and years of experience in online learning and animation. All work is copyrighted by Science Joy Wagon and remains the property of Science Joy Wagon unless ownership by a third party is identified on an image or page. The non-members only links are free to the public and represent lessons produced by others that are worth learning from. Only the best lessons available are linked to.
