From Our Homeschooling Family to Yours
General Science 101 was developed and hosted by Wes Olson, Multnomah School of the Bible graduate (now Multnomah University), veteran filmmaker of 30 years, homeschooling father and producer of the 101 series. Wes guides you on a tour through the sciences; laying a solid foundation of scientific concepts and how they integrate into our everyday lives. This DVD course will give your student an excellent understanding of God's mansion of science.
Your Complete, High School Level General Science Course?
It depends—homeschooling families’ approaches to teaching and learning are far from cookie-cutter in design. For some families, this set of DVDs— which are very comprehensive in scope—will be enough to provide a thorough grounding in each of the sciences.
Other families may prefer to use these DVDs as a starting point, one that provides their student with the correct foundation; an eye and mind-opening overview of each science, before beginning textbook study. A 22-page Course Accreditation Program booklet is included (digital PDF), for those who want the DVDs to form the foundation of a full school year's science course. In either case, students will find the series captivating and informative. In fact, the entire family might enjoy watching each segment together and engaging in lively discussions about the material.
