Lab Science Courses
Following An Historical Narrative 

For middle school classrooms, micro-schools, and at-home learning groups

Your Students Do Science

  1. Students login to the course platform and go.

  2. We send a physical lab supply kit so they can do the labs. 

  3. A series of short videos guides your students through science history. 

  4. Each lab begins with a challenge. Each challenge can only be solved by setting up an experiment using the supplies in the kit.

 

There are no thick textbooks, endless strings of online lectures, or high stakes testing. Just actual science!

Your Students Become Part Of The Story of Science

Learners are placed directly into the paths of discovery to face the same challenges as the great scientists from history - Lavoisier, Bohr, Darwin, Newton, Einstein, Mandeleev, and others. Courses are rooted in the actual historical development of science..

QC Course Philosophy: Teaching Through History

Your Students Begin Before Discoveries Were Made

 

The history of science is full of failures, successes, funny coincidences, tragedies, and ultimately of this radical change in how humans see the world.

 

But the scientific ideas, which seem to take hold, all began with simple mysteries and unexplainable hunches. This is where QC Courses begin. 

Your Students Explore And Generate Their Own Knowledge

 

Authentic science is actually like navigating in the dark. You do the best you can, with limited information, to make sense of your surroundings. 

 

This is how the greatest scientists of history worked. And in QC Courses, your students will need to do the same and boldly put their own beliefs to test.
