Let’s talk about curriculum. Specifically, the best homeschool science curriculum.
One of the issues I hear come up frequently is about homeschooling through high school. A lot of parents are scared that they don’t know enough or don’t have the skills necessary to homeschool their kid through high school. Math and science are always the big concerns. Let’s be honest, unless we have a math or science job, chances are we’ve forgotten most of what we learned about these subjects in high school or even college.
But it turns out, when it comes to science, you don’t need to remember everything. What if I told you there was a curriculum available that your kid could use at home, was hands on with lots of fun experiments, and they would have the ability to ask an actual scientist their questions (instead of you)? Would you be interested?
Thought so. Here it is: Supercharged Science
This is a complete online homeschool science curriculum. It is self-guided so your kids can do it on their own, or you can do it with them, and is hands down the best homeschool science curriculum out there. It is taught by Aurora Lipper, a former Mechanical Engineering instructor at Cal Poly University.
When I first discovered this curriculum it was through a free robotics webinar that they were doing. Well my son loves that kind of stuff so I figured sure, why not. Not only did he end up loving it but my daughter did too. They were literally captivated for over an hour.
Here are some reviews by other parents who have used this curriculum:
|“You have been such a fun inspiration for our son Sam, and totally got him fired up to build, connect, explode, invent, test, create, discover, question… and in a nutshell, get wildly excited about how our physical world behaves through experimentation.|
|“When I asked my kids what the highlights of our year had been, they unanimously said it was Aurora’s Supercharged Science Camp.|
|“I love the way you organize learning science it makes my life so much easier as a non-science oriented homeschool mom. Thank you so much for all your work. Thanks so much for your quick responses We love your stuff!!!!” ~Jan Sanchez|
|“Aurora, that was an amazing Astronomy presentation you put together for the eCamp. I love astronomy and have listened to lots of kid geared presentations with my children…. boring! Yours kept me huddled close to the phone with my son. So much information offered in a conversational way like we’re sitting around the dinner table discussing something we’re passionate about.” ~Brenda Praggastis|
|“Aurora knows her stuff. The video demonstrations are clear, engaging and inspiring. The text is easy to understand. The experiments go from fun to hilarious! The online section will never let you get bored… The customer service is better than we’ve found in any business, whether homeschool resource-oriented or not. You will have that taken-care-of feeling. Put it all together, and you have the best deal anywhere. Oh, did I mention? We’re really happy with our purchase.” ~Helen Dallman|
|“My boys have been picking away at the eCamp electricity experiments and they threw a FIT when I told them it was time to put it away because it was time for dinner. I am not happy about their bad attitudes, but I have been homeschooling for 8 years now and they have NEVER reacted with such vehemence about wanting to CONTINUE school as they did with your science. I was completely overjoyed that they were enjoying it so much.” ~Samantha Sampson|
|“I LOVE THE PROGRAM!!! I love that you have the forethought to give us supply lists. I LOVE that you speak to my kids about atoms, particles, accelerators, generators, nuclear physics, all four types of force and treat them like they are…REAL SCIENTISTS !!!! You are a wonderful role-model for my scientific daughter and son, as well as for my husband and I. You do have a tremendous impact in helping us motivate our learners.
“Let me reiterate that never before in one day, in SOOO many ways have I heard my kids so clearly exclaim: “I CAN!” I love the warning you post on your website encouraging repetition, persistance, and participation. ALL LEARNING should have this label!” ~Bernadette Frischkorn, Alaska
The great thing about this program is that you can use it for all of your kids, all the way from 1st through 12th grade.
But don’t just take my word for it. Go ahead and register for the next live, tele-class and see for yourself. Your kids will thank you.
