Science Exploration Live Zoom (By Request: Grades K-8)

    This course was created to engage inquiry based learners to help show their potential using project based learning techniques. The course will feature mini units/labs over Forensics, Life Science, Earth Science, Anatomy, and Environmental Science so students can experience several types of science. 

    Format: This class is offered in two ways: 1) self paced 2) live Zoom. If you would like this course offered via live Zoom then you will register on this page. Live Zoom classes are a great way for students to get access to a certified science teacher for lessons/slideshows/lab help. The class will meet once a week for 45 minutes for the weekly lesson, and then students will continue in Google Classroom the rest of the week. In Google Classroom students will find 4-5 assignments each week, practice assessments, and tests. During the live format, many times students will take live assessments via Quizizz, practice notecards with the instructor, perform labs and participate in discusssions over weekly science topics. Families can request for this session to be 1:1 or group. If the family prefers a group session then the family will be emailed when 2-3 others sign up. If we do not have enough for a group then the class will be offered the course 1:1 instead. After making a payment, families will receive an email asking for a few days of the week and times that work best to schedule the weekly Zoom. Weekly Zoom classes will meet for a session to begin the week, and then students will work in Google Classroom to finish the weekly assignments. The family will need to pace the class to finish the week's assignments before the next upcoming Zoom to keep a steady pace for the course.
