Science ONLINE

I often get asked questions about how we school online, but the most common question is, “How in the world do you do science labs in a home base setting with a public online school?”

Our online school provides a student guide with step-by-step instructions on how to prepare for and complete the lab, which is accompanied by online lessons that include the goals, materials needed (which are all provided), lesson safety and resources, and what the student will explore in the lab. Our teachers present an online live session and then the students complete the lab and submit the Teacher Graded Assignment and/or participate in a threaded discussion.  Sometimes pictures tell it best…

  1. This is great. I'm so interested in different forms of schooling and I loved having a glimpse into your 'labs' at home! I also love how the cat is 'taking part' in the Biological Compounds experiment 🙂

  2. OK, that is really cool! I love that they send you all the supplies! I would have LOVED that in high school! Science was always my favorite!

  3. Can't wait to check out your links, we homeschool over here and take a few classes outside of the home. Being in FL we have FLVS which is AWESOME!
    Will pour a glass of wine later and peruse, glad to be following!
