What Every Homeschool Mom Needs in 2013–Supercharged Science

Supercharged Science is a science program like no other. There is no textbook to bore your child. No long, dry scientific explanations, just straightforward, simple language for natural occurrences in God’s creation. This science program has a few different options. You can use it as a full year homeschool science program for grades K-12, as a supplement to another curriculum, a resource for science fair projects, or your child can enjoy a summer science camp at home. There are even some fun math tips and tricks.

For a full curriculum plan, you have a couple of options, the Science Mastery Program, or the e-science program. The basic difference is the Science Mastery Program is a full, science program. You receive all instructions, parts and materials, DVD’s, and lifetime support.  On the other hand, the e-Science program is paid month to month and the parent provides the basic supplies, while Supercharged Science provides instructions, videos, and support only during the subscription period.

The e-science program is simple to follow. There are 19 units that are each designed to be completed between one and three weeks. Each unit includes a shopping list of ordinary, everyday supplies that are relatively easy to locate. Some optional activities are a bit more involved and complicated–such as the hovercraft in Unit 1, and require specialized items such as motors and propellers. The goal of this program is to learn by doing. The activities and experiments are the heart of Supercharged Science, but don’t worry mom, you won’t be forced to teach a subject you don’t understand. The support you’ll  receive is well worth the overall cost.

Each lesson is introduced to the student by the entertaining and energized founder of Supercharged Science, Aurora Lipper. She has a brief video lesson explaining each principal. She has a way of connecting with and audience and making science principals fun and entertaining. Even I enjoy learning with her. Not only does she have videos, but her support resources include teleclasses and complete instructions for each experiment and activity.

The cost of the e-Science program is a monthly fee that can be cancelled at anytime. High school cost a bit more than K-8, but the requirements are also more rigorous. The at-home Summer e-Camps are very reasonably priced. It’s a flat fee, and some of the parts and pieces are mailed to you as you need them.

If your child is aged 7-12, Aurora teaches a five-day live summer camp every year in California. These are packed with fun. You can have your name added to the Early Bird list for 2013.

This program is very different from any other science program I’ve seen. Buttercup enjoys the hands-on activities. Until now, all of her science has been book based with some experimentation to back up the written word. Supercharged Science reverses this; it encourages the student to journal what was learned in the hands-on activities. This makes her think about the cause and effect relationships, and why things happen. It has really given her the best exposure to the scientific method. Supercharged Science gives her the experience of  using activities to make connections she would only read about in other science curricula.

Being a freelance writer, book reviewer, dedicated mom, and popular teacher at her homeschool support group—Renewed Moms Ministry keeps Rhonda Clark extremely busy. She writes most all of her own curriculum for her classes that have varied from elementary science, to middle school history and literature, to high school computer. Her middle school history class, A Renaissance World, will be featured at SchoolhouseTeacher.com fall of 2014. When not shuttling her daughter to soccer, archery, bowling, or any other number of endless activities, she devotes time to writing homeschool curriculum and her first novel. Scrapbooking, paper crafting, and reading are downtime activities, but the one thing she enjoys most is spending time with her husband of 20 years. They have two children, a college age son, and a high school age daughter. God blessed Rhonda with a quirky and funky sense of humor. This combines with down home charm, and allows her to connect to readers as a friend. With an ability to put a fresh twist on basic thoughts and Biblical teachings she brings a new perspective to her audience.
