I loved using ScienceFusion with my 7th grade boys this year. We were able to comfortably complete 3 modules during the year. I did have access to a microscope which was handy with the Cells & Heredity. I have to agree with most of the other comments about use. Many things are cumbersome to access and/or use such as the online teacher's edition, Lab sheets & Answer Keys, Assignment of online activities, quizzes & tests. Tech support was also difficult to understand. In addition, my username was not assigned to my state and was difficult to find...(more)

My 6-year old and 8-year old really enjoyed the online digital lessons. My 8-year old retained a lot of information from the lessons. I loved that they could complete the lessons independently. The teacher module, however, was cumbersome. We would buy this program again.

I love this program! I am using the middle school modules to provide more depth for my overeager fourth grade science buff - and it's a perfect fit. She enjoys the interactive digital lessons because she learns and retains information best when she interacts with it. The colorful workbooks and digital labs help to reinforce the concepts. The teacher side of the resource database is a bit clunky - so assigning individual lessons takes more time than it should. As a homeschooler, though, we rarely need to use this function. I supplement thes...(more)

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!

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)

All three of my children (ages 5, 7 and 10) have been enjoying Science Fusion this year. The combination of online and workbook materials keeps the information fresh and engaging. It is a great resource for homeschool families who want a flexible, unit based science program.

It's fantastic! The kids can use it completely self guided...however...one small complaint. No shipping to Canada? I have to inconvenience friends to mail it out to me and pay that extra shipping (which is quite a bit). It's strange that any company can't manage shipping to Canada, so it's a choice they're making and therefore keeping some eager Canadians from using their product.

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.

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)

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)
