Biology with Science Mom


Join Biology One to learn how cells work and master the basic concepts of physiology and cell biology! Not only will students understand several Middle School Life Science Standards, but they'll also gain a deeper curiosity and appreciation for living systems.

If you've enjoyed our previous science courses but you aren't in Middle School yet, that's okay! Biology is open to all ages, but the vocabulary and concepts will be a slight level up compared to our Earth Science and Chemistry classes.

The course runs from August 30th to December 17th and has three lessons each week on a MWF schedule. You can preview the syllabus here. Classes can be experienced live with an interactive chat and poll questions, or the recordings of the lessons can be watched afterward.

The registration fee is PER FAMILY, so one registration covers multiple siblings! To register for a classroom, co-op, or after-school program, send an email inquiry to [email protected]

The Schedule


Our Patrons receive an additional $25 off registration.

Standard registration: $205 ($180 for patrons)

Classes will be held each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 10:00 a.m. Pacific / 1 p.m. Eastern. Students who can't join live can watch the recordings or participate in our bonus "after-school" sessions each Monday where the Monday class is repeated at 4 p.m. Eastern.

If registration exceeds 300 students, we will open a second session at 8:00 a.m. Pacific / 11:00 a.m. Eastern to ensure that the chat remains personable and we are able to read all questions submitted.

What do our students say?


Finding Science Mom during the quarantine supercharged our entire school year. From her Chemistry course to her Earth Science class my 4th grader has been engaged and excited every week for class. These classes have consistently ranked as his favorites all year. He spends hours after each class telling everyone all about what he’s learned, singing the songs and showing his projects. 

The lessons are engaging and funny, with catchy songs that really help visual and auditory learners grasp concepts. The lesson book is beautiful with hand-drawn pictures, detailed information and hands-on projects. Bonus for homeschoolers - our advisor LOVES all the great samples produced! 

For anyone looking for a balanced science curriculum, this is it.
