Biochemistry Literacy for Kids
Unlocking the true potential of young learners
Breaking New Ground In STEM Education
Biochemistry Literacy for Kids revolutionizes STEM learning by making college-level science accessible to K-12 students. Developed by Yale-educated chemistry professors, our curriculum creates a unique visual and tactile learning environment that makes high-level chemistry and biochemistry fun and rewarding for kids as young as age 5. Perfect for homeschool use, detailed video lessons and activities allow students of any background to learn all on their own!
For less than $5 a lesson, your homeschooler can get an exceptional college-level biochemistry education. If your student is interested in medicine, or just wants to understand the living world, this program is for them!

Kids instinctively want to know what things are made of, how living things work, and why things are the way they are. Chemistry and biochemistry provide answers to so many of life’s great questions, but sadly, these subjects are almost completely neglected in standard school curricula.
Biochemistry Literacy for Kids fast-tracks students to a sophisticated molecular-level understanding of the world around them, helping them see their surroundings in ways they never imagined.
Our curriculum illuminates the stunning, three-dimensional world of molecular architectures and the network of biochemical reactions that constitute every living thing.
In our program, students gain an intuitive understanding of chemistry, which better prepares them for success in high school science. Since our curriculum makes learning advanced material easy, students also build remarkable enthusiasm and confidence towards STEM learning.
