Science for 12 yr old


Recommended Posts

Last year I let my chemistry-curious DD read science books according to her interests. After a year she requested an actual curriculum and I purchased Rainbow Science. She finished the Physics portion in a couple of weeks and is finding the Chemistry too boring and written too simply for her.  She is asking to take real chemistry and wants more experiments; she wants to "make things bubble and blow up". 


Any thoughts on Spectrum Chemistry at this stage? She is working at the high school level in other subjects and just finished the first half of AOPS Intro to Algebra.


We've pulled a few science experiments off the internet but I want her to have a deeper understanding of why's and hows instead of just following directions to make cool things happen.
