Fascinating Biology ~ Review

Summer school isn’t always met with tons of excitement, however, when you have fun interesting classes like Fascinating Biology from Fascinating Education that helps to keep the kids excited about learning. Brock has been reviewing Fascinating Biology and he has enjoyed the lessons!

Fascinating Physics

Previously, we had the chance to review Fascinating Chemistry and since then they have made upgrades in the their website including load speeds. Brock did notice a difference in how fast the site loads now compared to how fast it loaded for the previous review. However, we haven’t made it through as many of the lessons as we had hoped at this point, as they were having technical issues with their site. It is my understanding that in making the upgrades there were some technical issues which caused problems with the sound for the lessons. However, they were so great to keep us in the loop as progress was being made with the sound problems and now they are all fixed. I mention this to say that if there is ever a tech issue in the future I feel certain they would be diligent about fixing it as quickly as possible. To me, this speaks volumes in their dedication to those using their program.
