An Exclusive Interview With The Founder of Super Charged Science
As parents, we’ll do almost anything to give our kids a competitive advantage in life, especially when it comes to education, for education is “the key” to our children’s future success. What we really, REALLY WANT, is for our children to learn in a way that enables them to extrapolate abstract concepts and apply them in real life situations. This kind of learning transcends knowledge and becomes wisdom. Along the way, we hope that they are lucky enough to have a mentor, someone they admire and respect who helps ignite an intense passion for learning.
In the past several months I have spoken with more than 100 parents through social networks and in person about their top concerns and challenges when it comes to the education of their children. In the process, I have found several recurring themes.
Schools are focused on test scores. Will preparing for standardized tests really teach my kids how to think?
I no longer trust the school system to provide an adequate education. What can I do to make sure my kids are getting what they need if they aren’t getting it at school, and how do I know?
How can I make this happen when I know so little about certain subjects and am already pressed for time? I feel like I can’t do one more thing? Yet, if I don’t, my kids will suffer the consequences.
These are universal and valid concerns. I feel uniquely qualified to comment on this because my children have been in Montessori schools, top private schools, and home school. Across those three venues, I have had an opportunity to review and actually use a variety of curriculum. When I finally discover something that is a “cut above” the rest, I feel compelled to share.
About a year ago, my kids who love science began losing interest. We were faltering. I frantically searched for alternatives but everything was either too textbook driven, too elementary, or too boring. Somehow, I stumbled upon Superchargedscience.com, an online experiment based science curriculum. I was blown away, but the “proof” I need came from the reaction of my kids when they tried the program. They were hooked.
The program provided everything I was looking for. Quite frankly, it blew me away. I can’t say that about too many things, so I wanted to know more about the company. I decided to interview Aurora Lipper, Founder and President of Super Charged Science because in following her passion for science, she has created a phenomenal business and is helping home school parents around the country teach science to their children. To me, her passion, enthusiasm, product quality, down to earth delivery, and commitment add up to “fabulous”.
Aurora has positioned SuperCharged Science as a homeschool curriculum. I understand the strategy, but see this program as so much more than that! Any child from 5 – 18 can benefit from this program. It is a complete curriculum on its own, but it is also an ideal supplemental resource for parents who just don’t think their kids are getting what they need from science in a school setting.
My exclusive interview with Aurora reveals:
- The massive challenges facing schools and teachers when it comes to science education and why your child could be on a path to failure unless you intervene.
- Why most science curriculums fail to teach children real science.
- How children really learn and apply science
- Key strategies for teaching kids science
- How you can greatly enhance your children’s science education without a lot of extra time and energy on your part.
- Free resources you can use to get started getting your kids crazy wild about science.
I would like to offer you a chance to read my Exclusive Interview with Aurora Lipper of Supercharged Science. At 20 pages, it is just too long to publish as a blog post, but I want to make it available to you. It is absolutely free and can be downloaded by clicking here.
As a homeschooling parent, I have spent hundreds of hours reviewing curriculum materials and speaking with other homeschool parents about what they like and dislike. The bottom line is that we are all looking for what works and what doesn’t. And when we find something really good, we like to share. Homeschoolers are great that way.
Aurora is one of the most fascinating women I have met. She is an inspiration to SAHM’s and working moms. I hope you will find this interview informative and interesting.
Thanks for your time!
