Science Exploration Self Paced (9 Weeks: Grades K-8)

    Science Exploration 

    Courses: Elementary Science Exploration, Middle School Exploration

    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. 

    This course will be offered using a flex format. By using this format families can enjoy a low stress environment, that doesn't involve live sessions but a more flexible approach to learning. It will also allow our gifted learners the option of moving at their own pace during the course. 

    Parents can use the lessons to teach from at home (best for younger elementary students), or assign the student to work independently. Each week will come with mini video lessons, Youtube summary videos, science sketches to draw at home, and fun labs to try at home.
