We have been very impressed with the array of science lessons and how they can be used with the many different interests and studies of our school.– Sara Reichstadt, Kinderberry Hill, USA
I love that it is a program that doesn’t underestimate children. Our educators value how easily accessible the platform is and how simple the equipment requirements are, meaning an enriching activity can be quickly initiated based on what the children are interested in that very day.– Stuart Graham, The Operations Director of Monkey Puzzle, UK
I find Kide science to be a very useful tool with preschool (6 year olds) kids. It is motivating, interesting and made super easy for the teacher. Even with our special learners it has been a positive learning experience.– Elsa Raittinen, Teacher in the Helsinki City, Finland
We wanted to start with Kide Science as we see how it expands the concepts of science and language education to the wider underpinning perspective of multiliteracy. Our teachers also value how easy the platform is for them to use and how engaging stories are in all the lesson plans for young children entering the imagination world.– Carol Stancati, Director of the Red Balloon in School, Brazil
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!
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:
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.
Yes - our lessons are super accessible online. If you'd like to read more about making lessons remote friendly, click here.
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.
Currently, we offer a free trial with the ability to unlock one free lesson per week - forever. In addition, we offer a monthly subscription (with your first month being heavily discounted so you know what you're getting into), or an annual subscription if you love us! Learn more about these plans here.
Currently, we support the following US & UK curriculums: EYFS (UK), Key Stage 1 (UK), NGSS (US), Pre-K Standards (US, Iowa). Read more here.
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 children more engaged and focused at the task at hand (which is why teachers of special needs kids love us!).
Our main topics are Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math – or STEAM! However, our ultimate goal is to give children social-emotional, 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.
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.
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.
