Full Circle Science is for everyone, anywhere. Find yourself and hone your talents individually or in a collaborative family, classroom, or community context.
Learning science is of lifelong benefit. Think for yourself! Use the scientific framework + evidence to make daily decisions.
Below are some FAQs . . .
Science Jen developed lessons to meet the needs of individual children, parents, teachers, and SEITs as well as to complement New York State standards across subject areas, including science. Each lesson exists because someone wanted that lesson.
Anyone can use this science curriculum. It was created not just to empower PreK-undergraduate learners, but also to hold the attention and provide layered challenge and new, updated, current science research to adult parents, teachers, and SEITs.
Anyone from any religion (or none) can use this curriculum since Full Circle Science is secular, there is no religious framework.
The only caveat is that those who take their religious text literally (some fundamentalists) need to make a separate space within which they can use scientific, evidence-based thinking when it comes to secular topics in the natural world. Full Circle Science posits no answer to religious, philosophical, or ethical questions and indeed never includes religious, philosophical, or ethical topics. Full Circle Science is based in phenomenology and natural-world experiences only.
Many learners of diverse global religions have found that the Full Circle Science approach to real-world decision-making or learning to use evidence gathered via repeated observation, experimentation, modeling based on real-world data, can complement and further application of one's own religious framework.
There is no conflict between the secular application of Full Circle Science and any religion, provided that fundamentalist learners are willing to create a secular real-world decision-making space within which they can consider natural-world evidence and current reliable, replicable, reputable research results.
Full Circle Science exists because children, parents, teachers, SEITs, and administrators asked for fun science lessons and Science Jen used their interests, art and storyboarding to create a simple flow from lesson to lesson, unit to unit, and simple to complex understanding via iterative lifelong learning that integrates cutting edge scientific research across scientific disciplines and brings in tangential activities across subject areas including English language arts, math, social/cultural studies, history of science, art, physical education, social skills, consent, safety education, more.
Full Circle Science exists because we are all outgrowths of the world reflecting upon itself. We are interconnected with our world and with one another. It is long past time that evidence-based thinking using the scientific framework was clearly and cleanly presented to empower and engage everyone of all ages and demographics to use evidence daily. Joyful science is the basis of our existence as humans and can be used to further individual and global health, equity, sustainability, and inclusion if only we individually, iteratively, and collectively observe, collect data in an unbiased manner, analyze, synthesize, interpret, and apply evidence to our own lives to heal ourselves, our families, communities, and the world right where we are now.
Use Full Circle Science to supplement or replace textbooks, kits, and the blended approach packed in neat boxes and ready to use. Instead, use journal-based Full Circle Science plus nature itself and the stuff you have in your home, the playground, or nearby parks, museums, telescopes, and microscopes. Ask a local college student to help teach your high schooler, a high schooler to teach peers or middle schoolers, a middle schooler to teach peers or grade schoolers, and elementary students to teach peers or PreK. When you need to think critically, do some Full Circle Science lessons and enjoy yourself! Do some citizen science and Google Scholar the most recent advances in your fields of interest.
Science Jen is learning Instructional Design at SUNY Brockport from Dr. Papia Bawa in order to learn skills needed for her work. The side-consequence is that these skills also are of benefit to making the entire evolution-based 800-page Full Circle Science curriculum freely available to everyone online.
Science Jen is Jen Seron who studied climate change on rice for the EPA and IRRI during her 3-year research-based MS in plant sciences (Horticulture, now Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences- NRES) at University of Illinois in Urbana, Illinois. Science Jen's specialty was ecophysiology and controlled environments with additional coursework in tropical agroecology and field ecology. When Jen's son was small she was asked to teach science weekly to the PreKs but since there was no exciting curriculum, Jen created a framework to develop individual talent, skills, and interests of children and their adults via science topics, evidence-based thinking, and current research instead of textbooks. Full Circle Science is not a textbook.
