Course Introduction

Hello! This is Jason Lindsey—aka “Mr. Science”—with Hooked on Science. Are you looking for a way to get your kids excited about science? If so, each week, I will show you how you can use a few items from around the house to not only get your kids excited about science, but also to teach basic science concepts.

My wife and I homeschool our four kids and can tell you these experiments have helped spark a love for science. The goal of these hands-on lessons is to inspire kids to be inquisitive about the world around them and to develop a long-term interest in science.

Feel free to contact me with any questions at Connect with Hooked on Science–WebChannel, on Facebook, on Twitter, on Pinterest, and on You Tube.

(Note: Parents should always go to these sites with your children, and monitor your children if they are on sites like YouTube or Facebook.)
