My son really didn't care for Science until we started this program. I find that the more he is challenged the more he is determined to succeed and this course was just what he needed. This course is presented well and is a great aid to homeschooling.

My son is excited to begin science class each day. Other curriculum didn't challenge him. He actually talks about the things he is learning. I am extremely pleased with the class. I wish all his subjects were able to be purchased through DIVE

I am very happy with DIVE Earth Science.
I was able to get my son started in a matter of minutes. It was planned out, organized and had very good instructions on how to get started. The material is easily understood and manageable. It is a computer based curriculum that I can afford without compromising quality. It is God centered and honoring. I am very thankful for the program.

My 14 year old son uses DIVE into science as his science lessons. It is the only subject that he actually looks forward too each day.
It is excellent in that is all computer based and we love that it has the Christian view on everything. It is very informative and interesting.
Excellent if you are looking for a science resource for your homeschooled child..

This is the most awesome science course I have seen for Earth Science. It is jam-packed with interesting facts and beautiful photographs. As a mom it is easy to use, and the grading is done for you so you always know where your student stands. My student really enjoyed doing the work because it was on the computer. The immediate feedback when she got an answer wrong really helped her pay better attention.
