HOME Sci

 

High-school science at home with structure, guidance, accountability, and community... HOMESci – Hybrid Online Motivating Education inspiring learning and autonomy through understanding science.

Purpose:

Welcome to HOMESci for Biology, where your student can study science at home with structure, guidance, accountability, and communityThis is a hybrid learning experience where your student, not you, takes the lead to complete work at home and then submits online and on time. You provide the home and book (then concentrate on teaching other subjects and/or other students).

If you want your student to learn biology at home, remain accountable, stick to a schedule, share some of their work, and get one-on-one feedback, then HOMESci is for you.
