I’ve Gone and Done It
I’ve gone and done it.
I’ve bought a curriculum. Never done it before except math textbooks.
My son is super advanced in math and I wanted to be able to give him something to boost his science as well. We’re trying Supercharged Science, an online curriculum which is experiment based. Of course experiments is what he wants to do. Don’t all kids?
Her philosophy is make it fun and they will learn without knowing it. My son is all talk of acids and bases and forces and pressure. He’s super excited about it.
And here’s something fun…if I point other people to FREE science experiments that they offer, I can earn free months of the curriculum. Well, if you’ve spent any time with me, you know I’m all about free. I’ve actually put up links to some of her things before, so this is something I’ve already been doing. But now I can get credit for doing, and better for you, I can offer even more free things now that I’m an affiliate. Click on the button link below and you’ll get a science experiment guide. There is a pdf file and access to online videos. This is sold for $30. I get to offer it to you for free. Yeah! I love free stuff.
To get it you enter your email address. She will include ads for her curriculum in some of the emails, but she will regularly send out free experiments and other videos. My sons loved the “How to Fly” video she sent in one of her freebie emails. The half hour video was inside the cockpit with a pilot talking you through what he was doing. They watched it over and over. If you have experimenters at home, try this out! She really tries to make experiments accessible.
Below is my oldest son doing one of the experiments from her curriculum (available K-12). Her experiments all work because she’s actually tried them out–and does them for you on the video. She’s also always available with help through emails and comments on her site. I’ve learned that most major science curricula out there don’t even try their own experiments. That’s why so many go bust!
