WHO THIS COURSE IS FOR

This course is intended for all curious minds, young science enthusiasts, and anyone who loves observing and performing experiments!

The material is designed for students in grades 3-6 but can be enjoyed by all students. Adult supervision is recommended for some of our at-home activities, but videos and quizzes can be completed independently. Children will need to create a Coursera account with an adult.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

EXPERIMENT VIDEOS

Our exciting and interactive try-at-home experiments make the course unique, in that we value and encourage hands-on learning.

Most of our experiment videos use simple household materials - you won't need to run to a chemistry store to grab materials! Our trained scientists will walk students through each step in the procedure slowly and carefully, offering helpful tips along the way to provide a great learning experience!

EXPLANATION VIDEOS

SCIENTIFIC READINGS

Our short scientific readings offer students the opportunity to explore fun facts and applications of the scientific theories they just learned.

Through these original passages, students will explore the fascinating history that led to new scientific discoveries, ways we can build a stronger future with science, how these theories apply to our daily lives, and so much more!

More often than not, students ponder the question of why experiments happen the way they do, and we both recognize and encourage curiosity throughout the course.

 

That's why our explanation videos break down each experiment into the FUNdamental scientific theories at work. Each video is thoughtfully developed with:

  • Breakdown of the observations and results for each experiment

  • Simple and thought-provoking explanations

  • A layout of the scientific method

  • Real-life applications and analogies

  • Comprehension questions to ensure understanding

MODULE QUIZZES

Every module in our course contains a quiz for students to challenge themselves and check their understanding of the topics covered.

All quiz questions have been carefully designed with feedback to guide students to the videos and readings that will help them improve and fill the gaps in their learning!
