Fascinating Biology: Learn the basics of biology: components of life, adapting to changes in environment, maintaining a stable internal environment.
Fascinating Chemistry: learn about how atoms bond, molecular changes and all the basics of chemistry.
Fascinating Physics: Study the laws of nature regarding movement, sound and energy.
Just so you know, there are sample lessons on each of the main pages so you can check out how it all works yourself.
Developed by Dr. Margulies in an effort to teach science to those with little or no science background. So he uses plain English using a structured story format.

Once you log into Fascinating Education, you come to a page that looks like this:
Once the video loads it starts to play automatically. You can stop and start it as needed and even jump ahead or go back. It is very easy to use. The table of contents of quite clear in what will be taught.
There are 18 lessons in all. If you come across a word that you don't know, just pause the video and look into the glossary. The glossary is on the left hand side next to the Menu button (visible when using the video).
One of the aspects to this program that I thoroughly enjoyed was the "what you know" section at the end of each video. Learning these facts well would enable the student to do well on the section test.
It's a good all round program that should suit your middle to highschool science student quite nicely. Bite-sized bites to enable the easier retention of information without a background in the sciences needed. Material summarized to make the main points well understood. Audio and visual materials to meet the needs of most students, with 12 labs to cement the learning.
It's a good course and worked well for helping me to bone up on my chemistry. :) Each lesson on average takes about an hour to do. I found myself repeating lessons to ensure good retention on my part.
