Shawn and Heather Barrieau founded MyFunScience in 2016 to fill a need they saw in the homeschooling community. They noticed that parents were struggling to teach math and science starting in the middle and high school grades.

The classes are taught from a Christian perspective and they believe:

  • A well-rounded STEM curriculum is critical to each student’s success in school, college, and life.
  • Our future generations and future job markets require solution-oriented thinkers and the skills provided by STEM training.
  • Working through science and math curriculums provide lifelong skills to enhance your student’s ability to deeply and richly engage in any academic and professional arena they choose!

Their teachers have years of professional and teaching experience. Each of their teachers cares deeply about making students feel welcome to explore and discover.

Sign up for the MyFunScience mailing list by June 28, 2018, and receive $50 off an online course and a chance to win a free course!

For my take on their courses and the STEM Study Skills Summer Blitz read the article 10 Tips for Parents of Homeschoolers Taking Online Courses.
