Science4Us

Science4Us is a wonderful way to provide science curriculum in the homeschool setting. There is a blend of both interactive online activities, as well offline activities. Offline, there are lesson plans and activities provided for a non-virtual experience, which provides variety for those students who primarily learn from home and seated at the computer. In the online format, there is an amazing wealth of content available, all categorized by scientific principles. The interactive interfaces help children develop skills related to typing, drawing tools, and more. Stories and songs are also incorporated, which appeal to different styles of learning. Science4Us also makes connections to other educational subjects, language arts in particular. These connections include comprehending stories to gain information, breaking complicated words down by syllables, alphabetizing, making word associations, and using a glossary. Each section has an Engage module an Explore module and an Explain module. In Engage, it shows real-life connections thus setting up the lesson. The Explore module allows for experimentation. The Explain module is where the real “teaching” happens, using real pictures and videos to enhance the explanation. Finally, in the Test section, you can test out different outcomes based on the scientific principle. Testers were impressed with what they saw and believed this would be a great asset to any home school family or to a student who could use extra science practice.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
