SECULAR SCIENCE CURRICULUM
What is REAL Science?
A secular science curriculum that’s written by experts, organized for you, and engaging for your child.
Read about scientific concepts and theories at the beginning of each lesson. Lessons present complex and abstract ideas in level-appropriate, illustrative language. At the elementary level, you read to the child. Middle and high schoolers read on their own.
Explore ideas from the lesson through hands-on, project-based activities. Students build scientific models based on the concepts they’ve just read about and then use the scientific method to hypothesize, test, and evaluate—just like a scientist.
Absorb concepts through courses that engage different modes of learning. Through verbal, visual, and tactile activities, your child gains a much deeper understanding of the abstract theories presented.
Learn through doing science in a way that develops a lifelong curiosity of the physical and natural world. In Level Two courses, we’ve added quizzes and exams to guide you in assessing your child’s mastery of the material.
