    The threads that get viewed most often on our forum here at SecularHomeschool.com often have to do with secular science curricula...looking for it, bemoaning the lack of it, begging for input on finding it. In the past, secular homeschoolers have been underwhelmed by the available offerings in the science curricula arena.

    However, in recent years, several new secular homeschool science options have come on the scene making it not nearly so difficult to find a homeschool science program that will work for your family. I thought it might be a good idea to spotlight some of the newer curricula as well as the tried and true programs that are available, so you will have a centralized place to start looking.

    Science4Us (Grades K-2)
    This secular program is geared toward the early elementary set - - a nice bonus, since many homeschool science programs ignore the youngest learners. You can check out their kindergarten science curriculum, first grade science curriculum, and second grade science curriculum. They offer life science, earth/space science, and physical science for elementary. Science4Us combines the best of online, multimedia instruction with hands-on activities that are geared toward active learners.

    Time4Learning (Grades PreK-12)
    Time4Learning has a comprehensive multimedia science curriculum at all grade levels. You'll especially want to explore their junior high coursework in earth/space science, life science, and middle school physical science as well as high school coursework in biology, earth/space science, physical science, chemistry, and physics.

    Centripetal Press (Grades 6-9)

    The Cram-Pass-Forget Cycle: it's how we all got through high school and college. Cram for the test, pass it, and forget most of what you studied within two weeks. This depressing cycle goes on every day with students flying through textbooks, covering more material than they can assimilate, jumping through hoops to get a grade, and the Cram-Pass-Forget cycle continues.
    Centripetal Press science curriculum strives to break this cycle with mastery-based materials to dramatically increase retention, integrating relevant subjects and fostering the wonder innate to the study of the world. Read more at their Textbook Philosophy page.

    Supercharged Science (Grades K-12)
    This is a program that combines videos, live tele-classes, reading and exercises. The administrator of the course is a former NASA employee and has a Masters in Mechanical Engineering, so she is clearly passionate about science.The reviews I’ve read make it seem like the parents have as much fun ...
