FREE Online Science Class – Build Your Own Robot

Aurora Lipper – Supercharged Science

This Thursday, August 3, 2017, I’m giving a live online class on Robots and Robot Building, and wanted to invite you to attend for free.


Your kids will learn about Electricity, Magnetism, gears, pulleys, motors and LOTS more.


Plus, during the class your kids will do hands-on experiments including building a robot!


You can register here for free

If you’ve participated in my free online classes before, you know how cool they are (over 1,000 families registered for the last one I gave).

 If you’re new to them, I’d like to invite you to participate for free.

  If you want your kids to understand how robots work and why they are such an important part of our future, you’ll want to share this class with your kids.

  1.  If you’re interested in ANY of the following, then this is for you:
     Taking your kids from bored (or even playing video games) to excited and engaged in educational science projects that they can do on their own.
  2. Not worrying if you don’t know a thing about science. (Just follow what I show you step-by-step!)
  3. Having your kids learn about Robotics and Robot Building…
  •  I’ll guide your kids through building a working robot and give them plans for several more.
  • Your kids will be so totally excited about building these projects that they won’t realize they’re learning solid academics at the same time.

  • They’ll learn how robots work using electricity, motors, gears, pulleys, wheels, pneumatics and hydraulics.  (Don’t worry – no need for you to know a thing about this stuff yourself.)
  • If your kid is more academic than athlete, you’ll learn how community robotics teams are now run like sports teams, but for kids who like science & technology (plus learn real-world hands-on STEM skills).  Did you know there are over 3000 teams like this worldwide your child can join?
  • How new robots will help do everything from finding cures for diseases to fighting fires to exploring Mars.
  • And, of course, we’ll learn about the robotic self-driving cars that have been talked about so much recently.

TerraNova 3 Score Report Action Steps

Dear DC Homeschool Families,

I want to keep you updated on latest communication from ACSI regarding test score delivery, even if it’s not the news we want to hear. Please read the letter below which was sent to me this week. I believe ACSI is working hard on our behalf to remedy this situation and provide accurate test reports. As soon as we have test results in hand, we will notify you and promptly mail them to you.

Kind regards,

Erin Smith


Dear Colleague in Christian Education,

Over the last several months, we have attempted to keep you informed regarding the status of the TerraNova 3 achievement test scoring results for the students in your school. To our dismay, we continue to have issues obtaining those scoring reports, despite numerous assurances of delivery made by the assessment publisher, Data Recognition Corporation. These delays are completely their fault and not ACSI’s—by their own admission. Regardless, these delays are completely unacceptable to us, just as they are to you.

On your behalf, we have aggressively undertaken a number of actions since this became more than just a brief delay in early May, including the following:

  • Our legal counsel is deeply involved, advising us regarding potential actions to take to resolve this issue.
  • We continue to demand for a swift delivery of all scoring results, paper and digital.
  • We are committed to reach a resolution that will be satisfactory to you, our member schools (we know that you have trusted ACSI and we want that trust to remain).
  • We are actively researching other options regarding testing publishers.

At the present time, the most current information we have received is that paper reports will begin to be processed, at the earliest, the week of August 14. And if we are notified that reports will again be delayed, we will keep you informed immediately.

Please feel free to share this information with your parent constituency.

Thank you for your understanding and prayerful support.

Please join us in praying the following from II Chron 20:15b—’Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours but God’s.’

In His service,

Daniel J. Egeler, EdD
President, ACSI
