There are so many different lifestyles for homeschool families. Some enjoy full book work, while others use various media forms for each subject. One thing is for sure, life is busy and sometimes we could all use some extra help teaching. Science is a subject that I love to use visual learning with.

This curriculum was created by Wes Olson, a veteran filmmaker.

All The 101 Series Science courses include a Course Accreditation Program booklet and is available in a PDF format for easy printout.
Physics 101 takes your student into a fascinating study of the principles and laws that drive the God’s world. They will look at not only God’s universe, but Newton’s laws of the concepts behind quantum mechanics.
Chemistry 101 will take your student on a journey through the Periodic Table of Elements. Instead of boring old chemistry, they will be taken on an exciting adventure and even more important will be able to understand this complicated subject.
Biology 101 takes your student from the starting point of God creating the world through all of his creations, including the human species and genetics.
