Supercharged Science ~ a TOS review

Supercharged eScience Review

Science doesn’t have to be the same old boring subject day in and day out. It can be supercharged and exciting when you find the right program that fits your needs. That’s what I have found science to be this year as we have received a six month subscription for Supercharged Science for the full program K-12th. Supercharged Science’s e-Science Premium Membership is an online science program complete with over 1000 activities and experiments to do in all science categories, including Earth Science and Advanced Astronomy.

Supercharged eScience Review

Supercharged Science was started by Al and Aurora Lipper 10 years ago with the mission of improving the way kids learn science. Aurora is an accomplished Rocket Scientist who received her Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Cal-Poly State University and went on to become one the youngest instructors in engineering at Cal-Poly State University. Pretty impressive!

With over 1,000 videos on hundreds of science topics, the              e-Science Premium Membership guides kids step-by-step through hands-on activities, projects and experiments. The lessons in the e-Science program are formatted so that children actually DO the lesson and discover on their own, rather than watching someone else do them.

Want to know the best part about Supercharged Science?

The eScience program does not cover creation or evolution so ALL families can participate with our programs.

By focusing on the how’s and why’s of things they just teach Science!!!

We used the program as a unit study/delight directed study focusing on Madison, my future scientist. This year science for Madison has been a challenge. We first tried to complete General Science and  it was a struggle for her to do it because she had already been exposed to the information many times over. When boredom set in it was like pulling teeth just to get through the subject.

This review came just in the nick of time! I asked Madison which unit she wanted to start with and we took off from there. It is as easy as printing off the unit PDF files and watching the corresponding video.  We found that watching the experiment first was more beneficial for Madison and then she started digging into the learning the how and why’s to the experiment.

If you are looking to get your children riled up for science this is the program you need. Want a special deal? Supercharged Science e-Science curriculum wants to give my readers access to some of the amazing sample experiments the program has to offer for just $1.00! Yes, you read that right, $1.00.
