If you ask me if I’m worried about my kiddos missing out on experiences by homeschool, I’d tell you “no way.” The fact is, there are a few things I miss about public schools. Friday night football games. Prom. The annual school photos. Access to awesome live science labs. But the benefits of homeschool outweighs the bad by so much, I don’t even recognize those little issues.
Many of the items on my list of “drawbacks” can be recreated with a little bit of planning and extra work, on my part. But only one of those things mentioned above was darn near impossible for me to recreate. No matter how I try, it’s just too hard to create a live science lab. As I searched, I found a few online science labs but we all know that it’s just not the same as a live science lab. That’s why I was stoked to find College Prep Science.

Live Science Labs for Homeschoolers
Greg Landry is a homeschool dad and former college professor who is filling a huge void in the homeschool community with his live science labs. Between chemistry and biology, he offers classes that will give students a hands-on experience that most homeschoolers are unable to experience until they attend college. But Mr. Landry’s live science labs offer more than just hands-on experience. Your kiddos will make new friends, build critical thinking skills and develop an inquiry and research mindset.

Make it a Family Outing
For those of you who, like us, don’t live within a day’s drive of any of the nearly 15 locations, there’s still hope! Just make it a family trip! Franklin, TN is the nearest location for our family, so we’re planning a quick getaway. While my oldest is having a blast at the live science labs, the rest of the family will be learning about history. It’ll be the best field trip of the year and the whole family will get something out of our trip!
Instead of sitting at the hotel, waiting for Ms. Bookworm to complete her live science labs, we’ll be enjoying a few of these fun places near Franklin, TN:
