Limitless learning, more possibilities, all free
Just because our kids are stuck at home doesn't mean they shouldn't get an education. These materials have been tested with hundreds of kids. Some have traveled around the world as part of teacher support packets for multiple science exhibits. We are making them all available for free for personal use. And we are uploading them as fast as we can.

Educational Family Co-ops—a way forward in the age of pandemic
This pandemic is forcing us to rethink how to teach our kids. We can ignore this chance and allow millions of students to fall behind. Or we can embrace a different way forward. School co-ops is but one idea. There will be many other solutions. Supermarket Science Materials is but one set of possible materials that gives parents and students a chance to control their educational needs. There will be others. We can embrace many of them at the same time — when freed from the bounds of school districts’ indicts, we can do amazing things with our kids. There are as many paths to becoming an educated adult as there are people. This period of chaos might give us the opportunity to try something new. Please check out our ideas on how to make this happen.
That said, we are rushing to get all the activities to you, and those who rush make mistakes — if you notice a problem, please let us know! Thank you for your kindness.
Subscribe our newsletter
This is a small effort to do big things. We want to share decades worth of educational materials that were developed and tested in local San Francisco schools. We might do a newsletter sometime dedicated explicitly to Supermarket Science materials. In the meantime, feel free to subscribe to a personal newsletter. It typically comes out once per month and includes free ebook giveaways.
The Best Way of Introducing Chemistry
This was the best way of introducing chemistry into my 5th grade science curriculum. The kids had a blast and learned a lot.
Science Buddies Fun
The presentation by the Science Buddies not only introduced exciting science concepts to my 3rd grade students, but it inspired them to create their own science experiments.
Doing Science with Meaning
My students were completely involved in the various activities we did. The math and science of it had “real” meaning to them!
