Nexbooks Course Table of Contents:

Fix Your House

In school, we learn to factor polynomials and memorize the capitals, but can we turn off the water to our house in an emergency? This course does exactly that... it is designed to teach you about your house, inside and out, so that you can maintain it, and even potentially improve it.

Introduction to Cooking

As opposed to trying to learn to cook by following one recipe after the other, seeking some sort of pattern or logic, this course does the exact opposite. With an incredible gift for making the complex simple, the award winning Chef Dylan France teaches kids to understand the chemistry and principles behind how and why food cooks the way it does. Upon finishing this course, kids will not only be ready to prepare amazing and healthy dishes, but will have the knowledge and the confidence to "play" with food, and to "create."

Your First Car

There might be nothing more exciting than the freedom associated with learning to drive, and having your first car! That being said, unless you have a parent or guardian that is handy under the hood, there might also be nothing more confusing. Different from a true “auto repair” course, this class covers things from basic maintenance, to how to deal with an accident, and what the lights on your dashboard mean.
