You constantly feel like you have to keep up with the latest STEM trends so your STEM program doesn't get cut.
Your district gives you vague science standards but little time or budget to fit them in to your already-overtaxed classroom schedule.
You've tried dozens of other science programs and subscription boxes, only to abandon them because they didn't meet your student's needs.
Your Google Drive and Pinterest boards are a mess of science experiment ideas that you'd like to try "one day."
You know your students love hands-on experiments, but you just haven't been able to find lessons that fit with your class structure.
You're overwhelmed, exhausted, and feel guilty thatyou just can't make science a priority.
You are not alone!
Whether you're a teacher just struggling to make it home before 8 PM, or a parent who wants to invest in their child's interests but is too exhausted at the end of every week to even think about taking on something new, or you're someone suddenly put in charge of a STEM program you have no idea how to implement, you are not the problem.
But, no matter how busy or tired you are, you understand that creativity and innovation require inspiration. And you are devoted to providing the experiences necessary to make that happen.
Which makes you awesome!
You may have thought that the solution to better science instruction is more...
More detailed planning
But that's not true!
The truth is, children thrive and learn best, not with more rules, regulations, and oversight, but with the freedom to explore and investigate on their own time, in their own way, to make their own conclusions about the world.
Study after study shows that children who are forced into the study/memorize/test system don't remember what they've learned even hours after the test. And what's worse, these kids expect to be fed the answer because they are afraid of getting things "wrong."
But kids who have access to open-ended, hands-on science experiments have the freedom to draw their own conclusions from their own experiences, which leads to a deep understanding of the concepts behind the lesson (1), even if you just go over the concept briefly!
The Jarring Science Club isn't like any other science program you've tried.
It's a step-by-step science inquiry method that will transform how your kids (and you!) view science...
...from "just-give-me-the-answer" kids to innovators and creative thinkers who have a zest for exploring their world and are inspired to change what they don't like about it.
You'll discover how traditional science instruction is holding kids back and how less structure, not more, is the secret to true scientific learning. ______________________________________________________________________________________________
You'll get the confidence that the lessons your students and kids are doing reach the right learning targets- so you never have to waste your time hunting down replacement lessons on Pinterest. ______________________________________________________________________________________________
You recognize your kids and students need better science education and are prepared to do what it takes to help them succeed. ______________________________________________________________________________________________
You get done-for-you lessons that are fully aligned with NGSS concepts giving you the confidence that you can let your kids explore science in a fun, buildable-way that will benefit them at home and school. ______________________________________________________________________________________________
Your kids are put on a path to change their future- to develop vital skills they need to become future innovators, critical thinkers, and problem-solvers. ______________________________________________________________________________________________
It will turn everything you thought you knew about teaching science on its head. So that the old programs, beliefs, and systems never hold your kids back again from their creative, innovative potential...

Choose the Lessons that Work Best for You!
Not teaching weather in April? Don't want a holiday theme in December?
No problem! The Jarring Science Club allows you to pick the lessons that fit with your school standards and rubrics.
While new content is added monthly, you can access any of the club's lessons at any time.
Member benefits include:
Your choice of what lessons to complete each month
Access to 100s of science lesson plans for elementary through middle school
Support when you need it most
Bonus resources you won't find anywhere else!
I've helped thousands of educators inspire a love of science and a spirit of exploration in their students, and now it's your turn!
You may be thinking, "I'm only a teacher, can I afford this program? It sounds like it might be expensive."
Or, "Why should I pay for science experiments when I can just find them for free on Pinterest?"
It's true; if you bought everything offered in the Jarring Science Club individually, you'd have to pay $800 a month for access to every lesson, training, and video.
And you could try the DIY route and make your own lessons but that often requires complete re-writing of core themes and will take away hours that you could be spending with your family relaxing.
But I understand that most parents and teachers, although willing to invest in their children's future, just don't have hundreds of dollars lying around for supplemental science lessons (although many parents pay a lot more than that for supplemental sports education!).
But as a STEM advocate, I don't want ANY child to have to be without the lessons that could mean the difference between them excelling in a STEM career or not going to college.
And many of the women in my family are teachers, and I am not interested in taking a teacher's last penny! I know how hard teacher's work for every last dime.
That's why I've priced the Jarring Science Club so low, so that EVERY school can make hands-on science a part of their everyday life.
Because what I want the most is for more children to grow into adults who think like a scientist- logically, critically, and with a solution mindset that can discover creative solutions to real-world problems like climate change and the global food crisis.
I know you work hard for the money that you earn, and you only want to invest in tools that will help make your life easier and enrich your children's' lives.
That's why I offer a complete no-questions-asked, 60-day, money-back guarantee for the Jarring Science Club.
If you're not satisfied during that period with what you see inside the Jarring Science Club, just send me an email at info@STEAMsational.com requesting your refund.
It's as simple as that! No hassle, no fuss, and no questions.

Awesome, because there is something I need you to know...
Finding high-quality science resources that are NGSS aligned and teach kids how to think like a scientist is a tall order. Very few curricula and even fewer free resources get it right.
But it doesn't have to be as hard as it is right now.
...the hours spent scanning Pinterest and Teachers Pay Teachers for just *one* resource that works for your students...
...the money wasted on science kits languishing in your child's closet because they thought it was "boring"...
...the frustration of trying to cobble your own lessons together that meet your state science standards or match your child's interests...
It can all go away.
All you have to do is make a choice. And if you don't choose to join the Jarring Science Club, that's OK! The club isn't a perfect fit for everyone.
But if you choose:
A tried-and-tested kid-friendly science program
Oodles of ready-to-go experiments
A community of parents and teachers who understand why science is important
And the resources you can use toreclaim your time...
...then I'll see you on the inside!
Answers to your questions about the Jarring Science Club...
"Will the Jarring Science Club work for me if we are doing distance learning or hybrid schooling?"
Yes! In fact, the accessible nature of the Jarring Science Club means that it's easier than most science programs to implement in a home setting. Kids can log into the member portal, access the videos, and answer the quiz all in one spot. They can even download and print the lesson guide right at home and use their own household supplies to complete the experiments. Many lessons also come with digital slides you can use on Google Classroom.
"I'm not a teacher, can I join the club?"
Yes! We welcome all kinds of educators- homeschooling parents, grandparents, daycare workers, childminders, after-school care, and anyone else who has a passion for sharing a love of science with kids!
I started doing these experiments with my daughters as a homeschool mom years ago, and so I'll always have a soft spot for "unconventional educators" who want to inspire a love of science in the kids in their influence.
"I'm worried we won't have time to do the experiments, how long do they really take?"
Most of the lessons inside the Jarring Science Club will take a 45-minute class period to complete. A few lessons may take multiple class periods, particularly if students are growing something or waiting for a reaction to occur over time.
Most of the videos are 15 minutes or less, so kids can easily consume the content and complete the experiment in just shy of an hour. But of course, if you want to take longer on a particular concept, by all means do so!
"Will the Jarring Science Club experiments work in a classroom setting?"
Of course! Many of our members are classroom teachers! The lessons are designed with classroom teachers in mind so you don't have to worry about using tools unavailable in the classroom setting.
"Will the Jarring Science Club experiments work if I'm not a classroom teacher?"
Yes! It doesn't matter if you're an after-school care program, a separate STEM program, a homeschool teacher, a loving grandparent, or a roaming teacher giving lessons to kids who work on a farm (one of our members did just that!). The Jarring Science Club lessons can work for any setting.
"What happens if we don't do all 4 lessons every month?"
Absolutely nothing! You can do them any time. All of the previous Jarring Science Club lessons are available for download at any time in the club, so you can do them at your own pace. You can even download the lesson packets to use later down the line!
"What if my kids don't like the program, or it isn't a good fit for me, is there a money-back guarantee?"
Of course! I hate zero-return policies as much as anyone else, and I won't do it to you! I offer a 60-day, money-back guarantee on your club membership. All I ask is that you try one or two lessons before you quit. You may find it's a better fit than you first imagined!
"Couldn't I just find lesson plans like these on my own?"
Possibly, but there is definitely something to be said for having easy access to done-for-you resources that you KNOW are aligned with NGSS and encourage kids to develop crucial scientific thinking skills so they can unlock their potential to become innovators, critical thinkers, and problem solvers!
Also, it takes a LOT of time to develop your own resources. I know, because it takes me over 15 hours each week just to put together each week's lesson (not to mention filming and editing the experiments!). I don't know many parents and teachers who have that kind of extra time to devote to creating science lessons each week!
You could do things on your own, or you can reap the benefits of all my hard work!
"Do the club experiments use expensive or dangerous supplies?"
Nope! We only use things that the everyday person can get a hold of easily, and best of all, usually, they are things you'll already have at home or in your classroom.
"If I have questions about a lesson, can I get help with that?"
Of course! The Teaching Science and STEM group is an excellent place to get answers to any lesson questions and it's included in your membership!
"If I don't join now, can I join the Jarring Science Club later?"
You can join the Jarring Science Club any time. But I also know if you join now, you'll instantly have access to 100s (and counting!) of hands-on science lessons that your students and kids will love, that also align with NGSS concepts. You won't have to stress about what lessons to do with your class or kids because you'll always have a reliable program to fall back on!
"I have another question!"
And I'd be happy to answer! Shoot me an email at email@example.com and we'll get that question answered!
