Learn how to move science lessons from complicated and boring to applicable and interest-led so your kids won't just learn about science, but will approach life, decisions, and learning with inquisitiveness, leading to a deep understanding of how the world works.

Our special guest this week on Empowering Homeschool Conversations was Tina Salmanowitz, a teacher, homeschooling mom, and owner of Little Monster's Universe, science-based homeschooling curriculum for building lifelong science learners.
