About the Course
This college preparatory course will use the text Exploring Creation with Physics 2nd Edition by Dr. Jay L. Wile. Physics is often referred to as the fundamental science, because it is the study of the underlying principles of how everything in the universe interacts with everything else. Any phenomenon in nature is controlled by the laws of physics. There will be an emphasis on learning how to solve the various problems encountered in the study of physics. Several labs will be conducted as appropriate to help reinforce the concepts being learned. At least one year of algebra and chemistry is required.
Dr. Lewellyn received a BA in Chemistry from the University of Indianapolis and a PhD in Organic Chemistry from Vanderbilt University. After a three year postdoc at Northwestern University, he has spent 39 years in industrial research at American Cyanamid Company and Cytec Industries. Positions ranged from Research Chemist to Research Fellow with 15 years as a manager of various research groups (1994-2009). This was mostly in the area of developing chemical products used in the processing of ores in the mining industry, along with one year in paper chemicals and about 2 years in water treating. Major areas of expertise include the development of new reagents for the mining industry, process development, and scale up of processes for manufacturing. He is inventor on about 18 patents and has published more than 15 scientific articles.
He and his wife Carol homeschooled their two children through high school, where Dr. Lewellyn taught the science courses. He has been involved in church finance in which he served as a church treasurer for about 15 years. He also served on the board and was treasurer for The Nehemiah Commission (Bridgeport, CT), a local ministry for at-risk children. After retirement, he and his wife recently moved to Jeffersonville to be near their son and his family.
