Summer 2014: Science on Stage (Science Superheroes)


Science on Stage included a personalized script that the students created with the help of Ms. Melissa Ellington, and very cool experiments by Mr. Robert Ellington that included inclined planes, levers, wheel and axles, the periodic table, carbon dioxide, pouring gases and fire!

    Science on Stage is a great example of why we choose to be a home-educating family. Our children enjoy the best of the best. Dr. Ellington did an amazing job working with our children & the children were inspired to do their very best. Raising children is a vocation steeped in joy & responsibility. The weight of the responsibility is so much lighter with exceptional opportunities provided by School of the Minds. Thank you Carissa, De. Ellington, & our mad scientist for such a rich experience.
