The Elemental Science StoryElemental Science began when Paige was researching homeschool science programs for their daughter to use in first grade. In her research, she was unable to find an option that incorporated weekly hands-on activities and notebooking that was written by someone with a degree in the field.
With her background in Biochemistry, she figured the best option was just to write her own. So she set to work putting together plans that included weekly experiments, unique notebooking pages, and coordinated reading assignments.
One day in early 2008, as she was busily working on those plans her husband (and our co-founder), Brad, asked her what she was doing.
“I’m writing a science program for our daughter’s first grade year," Paige responded.
Brad replied, “That seems like an awful lot of work for one student. Why don’t you just buy a program?”
She politely informed him, “There’s nothing out there that fits what I want.” And then she began to list her criteria.
“Well, if you could not find what you wanted, don’t you think others can’t find it either? You should try to sell it,” he said.
That day the idea for Elemental Science was born.
We started small. At first, you could not even purchase the program from our website! But over time as our product line has grown, we have streamlined the ordering process, making it easier for our customers. We have added another writer, several artists, an editor, and others to our team. Through all that, we have remained focused on providing a variety of high-quality science materials at reasonable prices, so that you teach homeschool science with confidence!
Above all, we are committed to providing you with the same type of customer service we would expect to receive. If you have any questions about our programs or the ordering process, please don't hesitate to contact us.
