This program is incredible. The characters, the stories, the experiments are so much fun. Also the integration of SEL and other subject areas makes learning a more holistic approach

Ayeshah Ashraf found Kide Science:
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    students are more receptive to learning science and the concept through the interesting characters, the engaging stories and the hands on learning. The hands on minds on approach really allows students to be fully immersed in the learning. The role play of children being scientists also makes the experience very exciting for them. All of this combined helps students learn and retain knowledge and develop a deep conceptual understanding of the concepts rather than just just surface level.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    The lessons are s clearly planned out for teachers so I do not need to spend time lesson planning. I am provided with demo videos and the stories and the guiding questions make it so easy to me as a teacher to get my students thinking and involved.

  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    yes, everything is provided for me from the lesson plans to material lists. I do not need to spend any time planning. Everything I need is given to me by Kide Science. This allows me to spend more time focusing on teaching the lessons.
  • Significantly improves teacher knowledge and skills
    As a teacher Kide Science has taught me a new way to teach Science. Science isn't taught the way it used to be. Kids learn science best when teachers become simply a facilitator to learning. It is not about me following a textbook page by page. This program helps me peak students natural curiosity. It also allows the students to do real hands-on science experiments. We know that the best way for kids to learn by doing real science and this program does just that. I feel like I have changed my approach as a teacher and I am teaching science in a more up to date and more efficient and fun way.
