Why Real Science-4-Kids?
Teach real science.
When my oldest daughter was five she asked where the sun went at night. Rather than give her a nonsense answer, I decided to grab a basketball, a flashlight, an army man, and piece of tape and head for the closet. She got to be the Sun and hold the flashlight and I held the basketball representing Earth and glued the army man to one side. I showed her how the Sun’s light stays on all the time, but that we move as the Earth rotates and we experience day (when we are facing the sun) and night (when we are facing away from the sun).
Not only did we have lots of fun but she understood what I was telling her. She went on to learn more science and math and today is a successful computer programmer. This experience shaped my decision to write Real Science-4-Kids and this is “why” I wrote this program. If we give kids real answers to their real questions, we inspire them to become the scientists, inventors, artists, journalists, and computer programmers they dream of becoming.
Choosing a Curriculum
We offer two choices for curriculum, both of which provide a solid foundation in the five core areas of science: chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and astronomy. Exploring the Building Blocks of Science is a yearlong graded program, while the Focus On series is a semester-long unit study program.
