My 2nd grader has a fascination with science and engineering, so I signed him up for this course. It's been really fun to watch his curiosity grow with new ideas. The videos are very well produced and professionally done.

Easy for me as a parent, and my child loved it.

I'm so thankful to have found this age-appropriate course that my kids can do independently. My kids loved doing the course and were always excited to tell me about what they've learned!

This class was incredible for my child.

My son is a visual learner, and he loves to see things demonstrated rather than just read about them. With these lessons, my son has learned so much!

Very well organized course

My son learned SO much from this product. He could not wait to do the lessons and he learned SO much that he was able to explain things to me in a way that I had never imagined.
