Story-based homeschool experiments for non-scientists.

Embrace your child's sense of wonder and explore scientific problems together. Each lesson starts with a story where everything is possible. All you need is everyday objects and a few minutes!

Homeschooling parents ❤️ Story-based lessons

"It was so easy to grab things you already have at home and start doing that I tested it right away – and did the first Kide Science experiment with kids the next morning. Both of my kids got super excited about the experiment regardless of how 'simple' it was."

– Busayo, parent of 2, South Africa

"My grandkids have learned so much about observation and measuring and other important scientific process skills, but more importantly, we all had a fabulous time making memories together. The playful story-based lessons have captured the attention of all of them."

– Josanne, grandma of 3 grandkids, US

"We do science experiments every month. ❤️ I started at 6 months old. First nature walks and hands on art projects / science lessons. He’s almost 6 years old now and science and math are his favorite subjects."

– Parent, US

Turns out, preschoolers can learn science, too.

Can I teach Kide lessons if I'm not a teacher?

Of course! In fact, it's one of our points of pride that you don't need to be a) a science teacher or b) a teacher at all to teach Kide lessons. All activities come with ready-made lesson frameworks, pedagogical tips and tricks, tips for adjusting to different age groups, scientific explanations, and training materials.  Each lesson is tried and tested with real kids in the real classroom so you don't need to worry about whether it's going to work – because it will!

How can a lesson be appropriate for ages 3-8? That’s a really big age gap.

You're right! And we don't expect you to give the exact same lesson to every age group. Each experiment comes with pedagogical tips to tailor the lesson to your respective age groups. Take the action of measuring flowers, for example: 

An explainer on differentiation

It's the same task, but the super young scientists (Level 1) use a totally different method to measure flowers (by easing into the concept with something easy - like a finger) - whereas the older scientists use something concrete, like inches or centimeters.

Can I teach Kide lessons online?

Yes - our lessons are super accessible online. If you'd like to read more about making lessons remote friendly, click here. 

Do I need a science kit or special supplies?

You won't need one! We thoughtfully designed every lesson to use common kitchen supplies only. And hey - if you don't have something: we also often list alternatives. 

Is Kide Science free?

Currently, we offer a free trial with 6 free lessons of your choice and a free certification course. In addition, we offer monthly and yearly subscriptions that are great for homeschooling parents (unlimited monthly lessons). If you're teacher, we recommend starting with a monthly subscription or introducing Kide Science program to your principal.

Which curriculums does this match?

Currently, we support the following US & UK curriculums: EYFS (UK), Key Stage 1 (UK), NGSS (US), Pre-K Standards (US, Iowa). Read more here.

Is this for kids or adults?

Both! Kids will learn problem solving skills and science process skills while having fun, and as an educator, you will get to observe how story-based education keeps your your children more engaged and focused at the task at hand (which is why teachers of special needs kids love us!). 

What topics do you cover?

Our main topics are Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math – or STEAM! However, our ultimate goal is to give children critical thinking and problem solving skills they very much need to navigate the world growing up and all of our activities promote the learning of those.

Does this take a lot of preparation?

No it doesn't. In fact - our introductory lessons can be done right away with very basic supplies you already have on hand (like pens). On average, it takes about 15-20 minutes  to prepare – including getting familiar with the lesson outline, collecting supplies, and printing out needed materials, after which you're 100% ready to do the lesson.

How is Kide Science different from other STEM resources I already use?

Short answer: Kide Science is story-based, which is guaranteed to generate more engagement and get better learning results than normal STEM programs.

Longer answer: Our scientific research shows that kids learn better when they're playing and using their natural sense of wonder. That's why every Kide Science lesson starts with a story from an imaginary world. Stories and illustrations engage children and present research problems in a concrete, fun way - which is much more effective than science lessons with no context.
