What are Home Science Adventures?

logoHome Science Adventures

Home Science Adventures are science kits that our family designs and manufactures for homeschoolers. They are unlike science toys and kits in that they form an actual curriculum; each unit covers a topic comprehensively at an introductory level. They are unlike other curricula in that each is hands-on, and everything you need to do the lessons is included in the box.

These are the Home Science Adventures:

Astronomy, Birds & Magnetism

The Astronomy Adventure

Discovering Birds

The Magnetism Adventure

Microscopic Explorations, Insects & Light

Microscopic Explorations

Discovering Insects

The Wonders of Light

Are Home Science Adventures appropriate for my child's age?

Home Science Adventures are designed to appeal to children in grades one through eight. Children of different ages may work together. To see if the lessons would appeal to your children, take a look at some sample lessons. Follow this link.


How many children can use a Home Science Adventures kit?

Home Science Adventures kits are intended for one child, or two children working together. They can also be used by 3 children at the same time if you add some materials. See Extra Parts for our recommendations.


My background in science is weak. How much expertise is required to use Home Science Adventures?

None. Any expertise you bring can be used to enrich the lesson, but our lessons assume no prior knowledge.


How much parent prep time is necessary before each Home Science Adventures lesson?

One minute; just long enough to open the box, read the lesson notes and let your children begin.


Do Home Science Adventures teach about evolution or creation?

Niether. Home Science Adventures is a curriculum of hands-on discovery. Neither evolution nor creation lend themselves to hands-on activities.
