  Abstract: Physics education is an essential part of science education. Physical and biological sciences should be introduced to young students as early as possible in elementary schools and kindergardens. Then physical science will be divided into physics, chemistry, astronomy, geology, etc. in senior high schools. Later, at the college/university level, they are sharply divided as different fields and highly specialized to particular topics. For high school teachers-to-be, it is challenging to teach with some areas combined at high school level due to the sharp specialization at college studies. How do we help new teachers apply physics laws to chemical, geological, and biological processes. And above all, how to apply physics laws to environmental issues. This task is for both teachers, high school and college levels.
