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.

Introducing…

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 hated the idea of my daughter doing work alone— simply handing her a boring textbook for biology…

…but it’s difficult for me to do any school with my daughter since she has 3 younger siblings that need help and I work from home. We hadn’t used any online courses, so I was concerned online biology would be boring for my daughter. Experience Biology has such engaging lesson videos and the labs are interesting. So even though she’s done the course alone, it’s been a lot of fun

The course is rigorous enough I feel my daughter is getting a strong introduction to Biology but has enough wiggle room that if she misses a day, she can easily combine days and catch up.

– Melissa , mom of Experience Biology student

My son took Experience Astronomy, so I knew I could trust your approach to teaching Biology.

The course was thorough and taught from a Christian worldview. I forward your emails to other parents and suggest your resources all the time. Thank you for your work! It’s making a huge difference. All of my remaining children will take your courses and I’m looking forward to you creating more!

– Alisa, mom of Experience Biology and Astronomy student

I needed a cost-effective curriculum that was God-centered, interactive, and kept my son enthusiastic about learning…

I love having teachers that keep my son accountable — Luke and Trisha are personable, professional, love the Lord, and have a passion for what they teach. We love the vivid videos filled with real examples of life forms. The science experiments are professional, but not intimidating. My son is thriving in the course.

– Alissa , mom of Experience Biology student

My daughter was entering high school…

…and the homeschool method we had been using wasn’t providing a rigorous high school level science. Experience Biology was so convenient. I’d highly recommend this course and tell any homeschooler I can!

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

When will the course begin?

Upon registration, you’ll choose a start date: June 15 2020, September 1 2020, November 1 2020, or February 1 2021. When you register, you will select your start date after you complete your registration on the success page!

How long will I have access to the course?

You’ll have access to the course for one year from your start date. There are 35 weekly lessons, so that should provide ample time for your student to complete the course. 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?

No, 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

Please note: The Experience Biology: Basic program does not include enough hours for most students to receive credit. If you are intending your student to earn high school credit, be sure to select the Experience Biology: Advanced program option upon sign up.

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

Yes.

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?
How long do students have to complete individual lessons?

We recommend students plan to complete one lesson per week to finish the course at a typical school year. Once your student begins the course they will receive access to the next lesson within 1-2 hours of completing the current lesson. This allows you the flexibility to work ahead if needed to account for vacations or time off while still finishing the course in the typical timeframe. Students will have a full calendar year to complete the course, so if they fall a week or two behind, they should still have plenty of time to complete the course.

I had struggled with Biology in the past, and it helps my mom to have someone else teach.

The best thing about Experience Biology has been the understandable and fun video lesson. The guidebook for taking notes is helpful. I use it to share with my family what I’m learning about. I’ve recommended this course to my friends — it’s so much better than just being given a textbook!

–Sam, Experience Biology 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…

I have a dyslexic child so wanted something with videos…

I also wanted something that included hands-on labs and a student-led program because I wasn’t a big fan of biology in school. My students enjoyed the videos in Experience Biology. The course was well laid out and very easy to use. I especially like that students learn to write lab reports throughout the year. 

- Jennifer, mom to Experience Biology Student

We had avoided biology because I was nervous about teaching it.

Experience Biology gave my daughter the ability to take biology without me doing all the work. Being able to watch the videos and take notes in the Guidebook has been very helpful. My daughter loves the stories in the videos the best, and I like the dissections!

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!
