We really like Science Fusion. (The publisher's homeschool support staff are wonderful and can help make sense of the sign-in process.) I have an upper elementary son who is a strong reader and loves science, and this works well for us. We move a little more slowly than a middle schooler would, but the depth is satisfying. We like the combination of book work, short written answers, and the interactive computer component. I have tried several science currucula, and this one is a good fit for us.

I have always been a huge fan of Pearson products and I use other subjects of them as well. I love how ScienceFusion is set up and it is very user friendly. My daughter loves it. The only negative drawback for me as a teacher is the teacher manual. I have to go online to view it and the print is very small. Even when I expand the font, to me its still not big enough. I like having the opportunity to have a book in front of me. This is not enough to stop me from buying their products. [Co-op Note: To give credit where credit is due: Sci...(more)

I absolutely love Science Fusion. My son enjoys the video lessons, and the textbook reinforces the concepts so that he's truly learning the material. There are lesson plans provided that allow me to choose any or all elements of each chapter based on my son's needs and interests. The labs are well written and we've been able to implement all of them (caveat: we do have quite a bit of science supplies, including a microscope). There are also virtual labs that allow the student to create and test a hypothesis without the need for supplies or ...(more)

A+ My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed the Science Fusion Middle school modules so far. Very engaging video, informative workbook, not a lot of busy work. Will purchase more....

Having a workbook and also online virtual videos to watch and tests is a really nice combination. The workbooks are colorful which helps engage the students attention,and filled with great pictures, diagrams and information. Very informative material, that questions the comprehension of the student throughout the lessons.

I have been dissatisfied with trying to navigate the website. Additionally, you have to manually go in and assign each lesson, activity, test or video for your child. It is not as simple as clicking a button and it natura...(more)

For my SPECIAL NEEDS child, Science Fusion is a GREAT PROGRAM! The INTERACTIVE format keeps her ENGAGED and gives her opportunities to be INDEPENDENT (from Mom) in her educational activities. It is wonderful how the ILLUSTRATIONS of concepts COME ALIVE into MOVING DEMONSTRATIONS of content. Science Fusion is ORGANIZED WELL and EASY TO IMPLEMENT.

My experience with Science Fusion has been both good and not so good. The product itself is great and it's something my family will continue to use year after year, but getting set up initially was not a great experience. If you can look past that hassle it's worth every penny!

We used the module A, Cells and Heredity for my 10 yr old who is doing 5th- 6th grade work. The content is excellent, interactive videos a bit dry, but tolerable- but access is tremendously cumbersome. It is a multi step process to log on, finding the tests in the teacher section requires patience and time, assigning work is confusing... This is by far the least parent-friendly portal we have come across as homeschoolers and could really use a tune up. But; he's learning the stuff.

We don't do science every day, and it's going to take us...(more)

We love ScienceFusion. I'm very pleased with the digital component that the program offers. ScienceFusion also does a nice job of giving ideas for experiments. I am, however, a bit disappointed that there isn't an option to purchase a hard copy teacher's edition. I will use this program again in the future.

So far we really enjoy this product it is a new way to do science that is more in depth and includes experiments and videos that I haven't come across before!
