Fascinating Education takes advantage of the brain’s ability to process images more efficiently and more effectively than reading the text alone.
Dr. Sheldon Margulies created Fascinating Education to make learning science fun and easy. He believes that students will stay interested if given scientific tools they can use in their lives, and that this can help students realize how fun and useful science can be which in turn would contribute to their confidence. Fascinating Education offers high school online science courses in Chemistry, Biology, Physics, and Anatomy.
Fascinating Education makes a significant effort to affect how students view the study of science. Dr. Margulies flips the teaching process in Fascinating Education courses by approaching science through the “right hemisphere” of the brain. He uses simple, colorful illustrations, supplemented with attached audio files to explain the illustrations. The result is an easy way to learn science.

These online classes are perfect for homeschool families that struggle with teaching the more difficult sciences. Students can easily register and get started with a comprehensive science course that allows them to study at their own pace “slicing the content thin” and presenting it in easy to understand ways. a road map is given for each course so students can easily understand why they are learning each topic. In fact, the questions on the tests for both Chemistry and Physics contain help buttons that give the student an explanation of the material in a different way than the original lesson. This gives the student another chance to learn the material.
