Hi there,

 

I am looking for an online science program, or something downloadable or ebook or something, for my kids. I plan to do some afterschooling with them on science.

 

I plan to start with nature books and stuff like that, but would like to have a "proper" curriculum for them, soemthing like noeo. But we live in europe, therefor shipping is really expensive, and because of that I'd like to download something.

 

oh, i nearly forgot, dd is 6 and ds is 4 years old

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

My son LOVES thehappyscientist.com. He does the videos but there is a lot of other info on the site I haven't checked out.

The pandia press one :) We started yesterday with the experiments. It was fun! 

 

I am looking into the Physics program from Real Science for kids, but for later.

Sweet :) Which one are you doing?  We did earth & space previously... and we're doing Life (level 1... really want the level 2 next year!  It comes out just in time for our aussie school year start!)    We've really loved using it :)

We are doing both, meaning, we will do both. I started with Earth and Space, but we'll do the first Life lesson today. I really like it. And the kids like it, too.
