Projects include building an electric racer, a circuit, a motor, a balance scale, a rocket, an uno-guitar, and a solar fan. The Standard Kit includes all needed materials, allows students to work independently, provides the thoroughness of a text, and utilizes a hands-on approach. The standard version is presented in a straight forward, easily understood, and hands-on manner. Real life projects built by the student make scientific principles tangible and concrete. Not only do the students learn and retain the information, but they also find themselves enjoying and succeeding in science.
Each lesson begins with a chapter online covering the scientific principle the student will be learning. This is followed by comprehension questions. Next, each scientific principle is applied in an experiment or activity, typically using the student built project. The step-by-step pictorial instructions online ensure success. Each section (8 total) is followed up by a review that assesses the student’s understanding of the major topics covered. After each review the student can do a fun “Captain Code” activity.
The student logbook is used to record answers and scientific data using the scientific method. It also includes an index/glossary. The teacher’s manual has the answer key with sample hypothesis and theories, and assessment pages.
