Who Is The Homeschool Scientist?
Welcome to The Homeschool Scientist!
We are excited about science and want you and your family (or class) to LOVE it too!
After receiving my master’s degree in early childhood development and education, I spent several years teaching at a private school. I then went to work for a biotech firm in Boston working in their laboratory sites across the United States, developing processes and computer systems to improve testing efficiency and accuracy.
With 20 years of homeschool teaching experience both in the United States and in India, I hold a master’s degree in Early Childhood Development & Education. I have authored over 40 science kits and have coached and mentored robotics teams from elementary through high school. I served as a founding Board member for our state’s FIRST Lego League and held the role of Judging Director for six years. That volunteer position so.much.fun!
I am a firm believer in hands-on learning at any age and want to dispel the myth that you or your students may have that, “I can’t do science.”
Also on the site you will see Elaine. She is a biology and environmental science major with a passion for animal biology. She has spent several years developing science activities for students K-6 and has traveled throughout the U.S. conducting science activity workshops for children.
We are so glad you're here!
The mission of TheHomeschoolScientist.com is to equip and encourage homeschool parents by taking the fear out of and putting the fun into science education. I want to make you a Homeschool Scientist!

Created By The Homeschool Scientist
I scour the internet for science resources to share with you to make teaching and learning science fun. There were a few areas where I came up short and couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. So, I created a few studies to fill in those gaps.
You’ll find experiment ideas, curriculum choices, science resources, expert advice and more! Keep up with what’s going on by subscribing to The Homeschool Scientist email list and following The Homeschool Scientist on social media.
