Experience Biology

The science curriculum for homeschooling families who want high quality education plus an engaging hands-on experience

Think you need to be a “science person” to teach your kids science?

Think again.

Maybe you passed high school Biology by the skin of your teeth.

Maybe the periodic table makes your head swim. (Coffee anyone?)

Or maybe with 3,482 other things to teach your kids… you just need to leave science to someone else.

Here’s the deal…

You started homeschooling not because you “know everything”…but because you wanted to give your kids a great education outside the classroom.

Here’s a little secret for you:

You still can.

See, the most successful science-teaching homeschool parents aren’t the ones who know everything —

They’re the ones who find the best resources, and who teach their kids to teach themselves.


Engaging, hands-on science…that practically teaches itself!

Experience Biology in 4 Simple Steps…

1. Engaging Video Lessons

Students login to their online portal each week and watch  engaging video lessons. Students can follow the group pace or move more quickly through the program on their own.

2. Comprehension Quiz

Students take a weekly comprehension quiz, plus quarterly exams to gauge their level of mastery. Don’t worry: it’s all graded for you so you don’t have to do the work!

3. Lab Assignments & Research Questions

Each week, students will conduct a hands-on lab experiment and be assigned thought-provoking research questions to deepen their understanding of complex biology concepts. 

4. Reading assignment.

Students are assigned weekly reading from the book The Riot and the Dance: Foundational Biology. It’s optional, but we highly encourage you to grab this fantastic biology textbook.

I wondered if my son would be able to complete high school science independently…

Would there be enough accountability? Would he be engaged? I’m so happy to say the answer has been “Yes!” The combination of weekly videos, quizzes, and hands-on activities each week was perfect. My son has found it highly enjoyable. He has been inspired to learn the material and teach his younger brother too. This has been a valuable resource!

Our homeschool had been turned upside down with family and health issues…

 …so my daughter needed structure—something that would be there for us every week but would be flexible enough that she could use it at any time. Experience Astronomy was the perfect answer for our situation. We could count on science for that time period.

– Linda R., mom of Experience Astronomy student

I didn’t know if an online science course would be challenging enough for my high schooler…

 I hadn’t ever enrolled in an online course and was was new to homeschooling. I’ve been very impressed with the assignments the upper level students complete and especially like the tie in to scripture for some of the projects. I highly recommend your program. My only wish is that there were more courses for my high school student to do!

–Heather D., mom of Experience Astronomy student


You’ve got questions…we’ve got answers…

When will the course begin?

You’ll be joining our first cohort of students to go through Experience Biology! The course will be ready to begin the first week of September 2019. 

How long will I have access to the course?

You’ll have access beginning in early September. The course officially ends in mid-May, however the videos will be available for review through the end of June. Once each video is live, your student can watch and re-watch it anytime they would like to throughout the duration of the course.

Does my child have to view the course videos on specific days?

The course officially begins in early September. Students will have access to a new lesson every week (except for a three-week break around Christmas when there will be no new assignments). Students can watch the lessons any time throughout the week. Once released, each video can be reviewed as many times as the student wants through the end of the course.

Do you teach about creation or evolution in this course?

We strongly believe students need to be equipped with an understanding of evolutionary concepts because they will encounter these teachings throughout their lives. Experience Biology addresses the subject of evolution and creation on multiple fronts, helping students think critically about how both the Bible and science address these concepts.

Can my student earn high school credit for this course?

In most states, students need to accumulate at least 120 hours of instruction and course work to receive a high school credit.

The Experience Biology: Advanced program is a lab-science that will allow your child to accumulate these hours. They’ll need to complete all of the following to accumulate the necessary course hours:

• complete all the course lectures

• take all the quizzes and exams

• complete recommended readings

• watch laboratory videos and complete lab assignments

Can I take this course if I live outside the United States?


What additional books and supplies will I need for this course?

Students will need a number of different supplies to complete the laboratory work. See the complete lab supply list here.

A compound microscope is highly recommended, however if it’s cost-prohbitive we will make images available online for students to use in lieu of looking at organisms under the microscope. Please keep in mind, this is not ideal because an important part of taking a lab biology course is learning how to use a microscope.

It is highly recommended, though not required, that you purchase the textbook The Riot & The Dance: Foundational Biology.

*Textbook is required for Advanced Mastery students seeking high school credit.

Do you offer options to use this in a co-op?

We do not currently offer a co-op option for this course, but hope to add the option in the future. Please contact us to let us know you’re interested!

I was concerned enrolling my kids in an online science course wouldn’t be a good use of our financial resources…

 However, by my estimate, each week’s lesson costs just a few dollars per week—an excellent value!

–Tammy, mom of Experience Astronomy student

A few of the things your child will learn…

• How scientific laws actually point to the existence of God.

• The biggest living cell that weighs nearly 400 pounds.

• How a microscopic protist completely changed the nation of Ireland—in the most devastating way possible

• You already know Bible characters like Adam, David, and Solomon, but you may not know their contributions to the field of biology.

• How an obscure Austrian monk became the father of the field of genetics

• The #1 trick for remembering all the parts of a living cell and what each part does. 

• and much, much more…

Our science curriculum was stale. I wanted to spend time with my son on a subject we could enjoy together

I loved getting outside with my son and doing the observation activities. The videos always had something that we really related well to and could remember even beyond test. And I really enjoyed the teaching on classic mythology—it’s something Christian curricula is often afraid to touch, but it opened up lots of good discussion about worldview.

I wanted a fun, self-guided science course that didn’t take too much of my brain-power…

I am typically very involved in teaching science, but I needed a break this year. Thank you so much for providing this wonderful course. The videos are well done and you’re such an engaging teacher. Experience Astronomy has been a HUGE blessing to me and my family, and I recommend it to homeschoolers ready to experience astronomy in their own backyards!

I needed a class that that would save me from ordering lots of books, planning the schedule, and doing all the grading myself…

This year we decided to homeschool. The only things my two kids needed for the astronomy class was one binder for assignments in black and white and one download. The combination of audio and visual lessons, then quiz, followed by a hands-on assignment worked very well for our family.

– Miche W., mom of Experience Astronomy student

My main concern was the cost of enrolling both of my children in a program that we knew very little about. Our family’s income was very limited, and this was a big sacrifice.

…But out of all the science classes we have taken, this one has been the absolute best. The teaching was excellent, the videos streamed and played well, the content was amazing, and the activities were not only fun, but educational and meaningful. It was worth the sacrifice—these are memories that will last a lifetime!
