Inspired Learning

At Home Science Tools, our purpose and focus are summed up in two simple words: Inspired Learning.  Our company was created to help homeschooling families get the resources they needed to create meaningful, hands-on science opportunities that would inspire their kids to want to learn more about the world around them. That effort has since expanded to help meet the needs of teachers, schools, science enthusiasts and even those looking to buy gifts for kids with an interest in science.

Since our founding, there have been wonderful new scientific discoveries and a host of new technologies designed to help teach about them. At the same time, there has never been a greater need to teach future generations the foundational scientific concepts on which they can build.  That’s where Home Science Tools can help.
