Learn to Study Science from the Masters, Part 1

How Did Sir Isaac Newton Study Science? This will be the first of several articles coming out throughout the year on how well-known scientists studied science.

Homeschool Conferences and Book Fairs, Part Two: Workshops

Workshops at conventions! Seems like it’s the perfect place to learn lots of new information to help you get prepared. They are that and so much more.
