So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do,
do it all for the glory of God. - 1 Corinthians 10:31

Westfield Studios and the 101 series logo

Westfield Studios

Westfield Studios was founded by Wes and Tammy Olson in 2004. Tammy had been searching for a high school biology curriculum, but was unable to find anything that fit her children's learning style on the current curriculum market. Wes, with 15 years of corporate film production experience, a natural love of science, and Tammy by his side, stepped up to create what is now known as the 101 series.

the 101 series

The objective of the 101 series is to glorify God by providing high school-level homeschool curriculum from a biblical perspective that is easy to use, understandable, and visually rich. The series includes General Science 101, Biology 101, Chemistry 101 and Physics 101.

The 101 series is available from this website, as well as in many nationally recognized retail stores. You can view a list of these retailers here.

For those who prefer an online learning experience, we also provide the 101 series on our video streaming platform. If you are interested, visit our curriculum streaming site!

The Olson Family

Wes and Tammy Olson have four children, all of whom were homeschooled: Lucas, Micah, Rebekah, and Hannah. They are committed to serving God and having a family that glorifies Him in all aspects of their lives, including how they interact, work, play, and live. They recognize the importance of a strong marriage for the overall health of their family.

As part of their commitment to their marriage, they have established two firm traditions. First, every day they spend an hour walking together, discussing various topics such as what is happening in their lives, their children's lives, spiritual matters, and their future. Second, once a month on their wedding anniversary, they have a date to celebrate their love and commitment to each other.


Wes Olson became interested in film production in the '70s, when video was still recorded on reel-to-reel tapes. He attended the film school at the University of Southern California with the hope of pursuing film production. However, after one semester, his life took a significant turn when he became a Christian, and God led him on a twelve-year "detour" away from film production.

Since his conversion in 1979, Wes has been an enthusiastic student of the Bible. He was born and raised in Reno, Nevada, and later moved to Portland, Oregon, to attend Multnomah School of the Bible, where he graduated in 1984. Wes and Tammy met while attending Multnomah and were married the day after graduation.

In 1991, Wes began making corporate videos in Portland, Oregon. He learned filming, directing, lighting, sound design, and editing, producing videos for local companies such as Boeing and Portland General Electric over the next fifteen years. Corporate clients particularly appreciated his ability to simplify and explain complex ideas in a way that viewers could understand.

It had long been Wes' dream to use his film-making and teaching abilities for the furtherance of God's kingdom. Developing and producing the 101 series has allowed him to accomplish this goal.

Wes and Tammy resided in the Portland, Oregon area until 2000 when they moved to Kamiah, Idaho, which is situated in the beautiful Clearwater River Valley. Here, Wes continues to fulfill his desire to educate people for the glory of God.


Tammy manages marketing, customer support, and shipping for the 101 Series and is the coordinator for business and home activities. She also works part time in the shipping and customer service departments for a local business. In her off-time she enjoys gardening, quilting, and DIY projects.


Lucas and Tessa married on June 19, 2010. They reside in Lewiston, Idaho. Lucas works at ATK, a munitions manufacturer for Vista Outdoors. They have six children: Malcolm, Marek, Rory, Ivy Grace, Guinevere, and Sebastian.


Micah and Aleah married on July 3, 2010. They reside in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho with their two daughters, Lashawna and Kenna. Micah owns and operates Spike Construction, a residential construction business as well as working for Adept Construction. Additionally, he assists Westfield Studios with website development, email marketing, and graphic design.


Rebekah married Burl Thompson on June 11, 2016. Together, they are building their home on 20 acres of land in Kamiah, Idaho. Burl works for a local family-owned business, while Rebekah takes care of their daughter, Scarlet and family farm.


Hannah is currently working at Freedom Northwest Credit Union as a customer service call center representative. She is excited for the opportunities that lie ahead. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, reading, and spending time with her family.

We are a family just like yours
and we are thrilled to have this opportunity to help
educate the next generation with the 101 series!

God bless you and your household,
