Homeschool Science Speaker: Paige Hudson

Hi, I am Paige Hudson, author of the award-winning programs at Elemental Science, the voice behind the Tips for Homeschool Science Show, and homeschooling mom of two. As the holder of a degree in Biochemistry and the author of more than 30 award-winning books and curricula, I bring to the table many years of experience as a homeschool teacher, writer, podcaster, and science lover!

My purpose, as a speaker, is to make sure those who come to listen walk away confident in their ability to teach or direct their student’s science education.

I seek to share my passion by providing the attendees with practical information about teaching science. I work to remove the fears associated with teaching science and to encourage the listeners with ideas on how they can teach science in their homeschool.

I am currently booking engagements to speak (in person or virtually) on a number of topics relating to homeschool science for your co-op, school, or convention.
