Microscopic Marvels: Explorations in Historical & Modern Microscopy

An affordable, year long course devoted to the study of microscopy through hands on observation, research, and scientific journaling.

Traditional science can be intimidating for neurodivergent teens.

It’s hard to learn like everyone else when your brain craves another way.

Too many disconnected facts to memorize and remember for tests.

Too many details in boring text books with labs that are uncomfortable and uninteresting

Too much math is required and not enough creativity is allowed in scientific subjects.

Happy Notes
But you know what?

You can homeschool college prep science a different way!

It’s ok to approach science in a more authentic and engaging way to earn high school credit and still prepare for university level courses.
