The founders of Sophic Pursuits are dedicated to developing science education materials for those interested in learning more basic science. As parents who homeschooled their two children, they understand that while there are many curriculum choices available, but not all of those choices meet the needs of the parents, teachers, and students. Sophic Pursuits is trying to provide resources to parents and adults who are working with students in a homeschool, collective school, or science enrichment program. These resources include tools for the instructor as well as for the student. Our instructor resources are designed for the person who feels intimidated by science or has a limited science background, allowing them to learn with the children they are helping. For those with a solid science background, we hope that the laboratory materials will help promote the hands-on discovery process that many programs outside the traditional school system lack.
