Ultimate Science Curriculum Series

The Ultimate Science Curriculum is a DVD video-based science curriculum that explains topics to kids in a hands-on real-world way using step-by-step video lessons to guide them through every detail of each lesson, experiment and project. Then it introduces academics to support the lesson your child is working on.

Each lesson includes step-by-step videos, detailed reading, exercises and quizzes.

Since the program is completely on DVD, you can use it even if you don't have a high-speed internet connection available.

And remember, while this is a DVD program, it's primarily based on hands-on science. This means that your kids will be spending most of their time creating experiments and building projects (not just looking at a computer).

Since it's a self-guiding program , while you're welcome to go through it alongside your kids, it's designed so you don't have to. Just set your kids up, and they'll go on their own.

Here are the volumes that are available, organized by topic. You can also see which volumes are appropriate for your child's grade level.

By the way, if you're new to Supercharged Science, you may feel better knowing that our science programs have received numerous awards and stellar reviews.

It turns out that Cathy Duffy rated us as one of her top 101 picks for 2013 out of all the educational programs available.

And I was really touched when I learned that in Practical Homeschooling Magazine's annual reader poll, Supercharged Science was voted by homeschoolers as the BEST science program available in not one, but all five science categories.

On top of this, dozens of other random web sites have given our programs really amazing reviews. Just search for "Supercharged Science" and you'll see for yourself what people think of my science programs.

A note about the Ultimate Science Curriculum DVDs: The Ultimate Science Curriculum DVDs contain the curriculum organized into a PDF document that are also located on the DVD. You may print out the worksheets for each experiment as you go along. The DVDs also contain instructional step-by-step videos that show exactly how to perform the experiments in the included workbook. The videos on the DVDs are designed primarily to play on your computer. The videos will also play on DVD players but since they are designed for computers you will notice a drop in video quality if you view them on a large screen. Also note that while the DVD swill play on a DVD player, you’ll still need to open the workbook on your computer.

By Grade Level:

These are the current volumes organized by grade level. Note that this is based on the national standards for science, and also my personal experience in teaching kids science for over a decade. The list below is simply a recommendation. You are welcome to pick and choose from the titles you'd like to do. For example, if you've got an advanced 4th grader who's got an avid interest in chemistry, feel free to get all three chemistry volumes. In general, you don't need to complete Part 1 in order to do Part 2, although I would recommend completing Part 2 before Part 3 in both Astronomy and Chemistry.
