I did a google search for “homeschool science curriculum.” I might have googled “secular homeschool science curriculum.” There was a homeschool website with a review. I wish I could tell you the name of that site, but it was awhile back over the summer. I had never heard of Fascinating Education before. I had trouble finding a lot about it in terms of other reviews.
I ended up purchasing a different program for this year that was quite expensive. We were trying so hard to stick with it because of the cost, but both kids (14 and 17) were zoned out every time I brought it out.
We finally gave up on the program I purchased and I wanted to get them started on something. I went back and googled the name again, found the Fascinating Education site, and made my purchase.
We all like this program for the simplicity compared with what we had been doing. I like that it is on the computer vs. tons of reading/writing. One of the kids has dysgraphia and the other struggles with reading. I can supplement materials as needed. This just really works out a lot better for us.
I was cooking dinner this evening when I heard him drop his headset with a clatter on the table and holler, “Mom! Come quick so I can tell you about Calico cats and sex linked genes!” These lessons are so very wonderful! Thank You again!!!
We love this course so much and I am happy to help out in any way I can.
In fact, over Christmas break, we read the book you all sent by Dr. Margulies about the human body. It was so fantastic that I bought a copy for a friend and then at my son’s urging we hunted down and purchased the book Dr. Margulies wrote on law. He is our favorite author for non-fiction and science, right behind Richard Feynman!
My daughter, a homeschooled high school sophomore, has been joyously working through the Intro to Chemistry course. She eagerly seeks me out to share what she’s learned for the day. The course has restored her love of science! So much so, that she has decided to take AP Chemistry instead of AP Biology next year.
She’ll probably finish the intro course sooner than later since she is excited to do the Pre-course. Knowing my daughter, she may want to do the full Chemistry course over the summer 😉
I have ten children. Five of whom I am currently homeschooling, three have graduated, and two are waiting in the wings. I’ve seen your program throughout the years but never had a science-oriented student until now and a few more to follow.
