Like most Home Ed mums I’ve been asked on more than one occasion how I intend to teach my children science. (You know the one, it always comes hot on the heals of the “Waddabout socialisation? question).
Well, there is a lot of books and curriculum, especially from Anerica and most of us parents have a secret stash of test tubes and strange chemicals from one or more of those science kits so easily available on the internet.
For older children and adults I really recommend The Catholic Laboratory Podcast. Eaxh episode has a set of links and resources on the page. You can download the podcasrs from itunes, but I prefer to do so from the site as I can then more easily see what resources go with eaxh episode.
Mr Maxwell, who does the podcasts covers a lot of different aspects of science and its history.
The other podcasts I really recommennd, which I have only discovered recently is Catholic Under the Hood fronted by the rather wonderfully named Father Seraphim Beshoner who is a tutor for the Austrian based school of Franciscan University. His podcasts cover a whole range of topics on history and science.
Fr. Seraphim also offers videocasts via itunes which I haven’t had a chance to look at yet.
So fill up your MP3 player or Kindle or whatever you have – and fill up your brain.
