Would you like your kids to love chemistry? Then this curriculum is for you. We were offered the opportunity to review Fascinating Chemistry by Fascinating Education this fall. This class has helped my son to have a great start to the new school year.

The Fascinating Chemistry course is geared for the highschool student. It is a year’s worth of chemistry learning through an online course and includes 18 lessons covering about various subjects.
The course retails for $79.00 a year.
Every lesson has various subject within the lesson, and each subject covered has its own learning video, glossary, and a written script of the video lesson and an online quiz.
The quizzes and answer keys are available in PDF versions.
Each lesson is laid out in an easy to use display, with buttons below each picture for access to the lessons, text scripts, and tests which correlate with each lesson making it very easy for students to navigate the course.

How We Used Facinating Education Chemistry In Our Home
We received a one year subscription to Fascinating Chemistry for the purpose of writing this review. We love learning science at our house and my oldest son is especially interested in learning the “WHY” of behind every thing.
He has been asking for a Chemistry course and this opportunity to review this class was a great opportunity for him. Each day he logs in and watches the lesson videos, learns terminology, and completes assigned tasks without being prompted by me.
He is learning so much. I am very impressed how easily he is learning the information. I feel he is getting a good handle on being familiar with the terminology. He takes his time and often repeats the videos to be sure he has learned all of the information. I think learning the terminology is the key to grasping an understanding of the videos.
I would definitely recommend this curriculum. It is wonderful to have courses on line because you can access them anytime day or night 24/7 to work on your assignments.
I love science as much as my kids. My favorite classes in school were science and music and I think I have passed this on to my kids. We want to know “HOW” things work and “WHY”. If you asked me about almost any subject today like cooking, bible, health, gardening, etc. I would tell you the science behind it. The kids are turning out like this too…cooking science, science of health, science of gardening, even science in the bible. We all love science. I have shared this with my friends before, but I will share it again, that our family’s favorite kind of TV shows are ones that show the science behind how things happen like “How It Works” “How Its Made”, “Good Eats”, “Myth Busters”, “Time Warp”, “The Science Of Stupid”, etc.
I am happy my son is enjoying this class and is learning about How and Why things around us work.

Did you find this curriculum promoted a secular world view in opposition to a biblical worldview?
This is a great question and he addresses this in the “faq” section of his website. On his website he states he is a Christian, and believes both faith and science have truth. He does not promote either worldviews in his curriculum, as he does not point kids or try to sway them one way or the other in his curriculum. However, this curriculum does not seem to be overly hypothetical theory or anti-faith either.
