Computer Science and Programming for Homeschoolers

One of my favorite things to talk about. It is something I know well, and enjoy doing: computer science and programming for homeschoolers. My big kid has been very interested in programming at some point in his life. Beyond basic computer literacy. There are so many resources to go about this, it is easy to get lost in them. Here are some that we have used in the past and enjoyed.

Foreign Language Resources for Homeschoolers

A second or even a third language can be an amazing asset to anyone. However, learning a whole other language can be a tricky thing. The easiest way would be to move to a community that speaks mostly in that language and learn there, but as we all know, that is not always an option. So what do we do? We find other resources and use them consistently. Here are some of our foreign language resources for homeschoolers (or anyone that wants to learn another language) that we have tried and liked.

Actually, there are quite a few different programs and books to look at and try. My family has tried the ones I talk about here. The kids are learning Russian, and at some point they were learning Spanish as well. I am working on my Spanish at the moment.

Princeton Splash And Other Splash Events

This is a fantastic opportunity, not just for homeschoolers, but for kids of any age.

We have gone to the 2015 Splash in Princeton University, and it was an amazing experience.  The kids got to spend a day at the University taking a variety of classes.  The classes were taught by undergraduate students.  They were able to sign up for quite a number of classes, as long as it was within the right time.  The variety of classes taught was truly astounding.  From art to physics, and so much in between, there was something there for everyone.
