KS3/4 Science – Physics Lesson Starters: Sound
Question: How do home schooled students do Science Experiments that require special equipment?
Chemistry, dissections for biology, etc. Do the parents do it themselves at home? What if the parent doesn’t know how to dissect a frog or mix chemicals without blowing the place up???
Answer: We, the parents, buy the materials at the same supply houses as the schools. We, the parents, have generally done these experiments, dissections, prepped lab slides, etc. ourselves at some point in our education since we DID go to school and or college, and or have advanced degrees.
We sometimes share expensive equipment in cooperatives and frequently prepped slides. We follow instructions carefully and have emergency equipment available in case someone has an accident. And often times a parent in the group who happens to be a scientist or doctor or professor can sometimes allow us access to a lab for fee. Especially if the student is working at an AP level.
Long answer short: the same way you do it in school.
And if you are a homeschooling parent wondering how to get started, try Home Training Tools website for supplies and guides and texts. Also SK & Boreal Laboratories for elementary and secondary supplies.
Trying to keep the kids interested in science over the summer! Looking for a seriously good and advanced science project (high school / collage) that can utilize a 1 Ft cube Vacuum Chamber (-28″ Hg), a 5 gal Pressure Tank (80 lbs PSI), a 3200 RPM Centrifuge, and/or a Biological Microscope (binocular with video out). We have about a $250 budget for other materials.
(Please don’t suggest putting any of my pets/children in any of the above items
