Announcing: a new science resource for Catholic homeschoolers

I am really excited about this, even though Una is still a couple of years away from high school.  My friend Marilyn recently did much research looking into high school science for her 10th grade daughter, and after looking at the usual textbooks, rejected them, claiming that "after reviewing them many are either boring, simplistic, too complex, overpriced, anti-Catholic or with too much of a young earth agenda."

Well, I am hooping that this will be an answer.  My friend Kym, homeschooling mother of nine, sent me this email detailing her eldest son's new venture:


"I wanted to let you all know about Michael's new project. He has developed a new resource for Catholic homeschoolers and others interested in science taught in line with the Church's teachings. His new website is CatholicScience.com  http://www.catholicscience.com/  and he will be offering classes in Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. The astronomy course is up and running now and Biology will be available shortly, with Chemistry and Physics to follow in the coming year. I am hoping that you can help spread the word about CatholicScience to your friends and homeschool groups. You can read his announcement on his blog http://deepsoftime.com/2010/07/04/new-venture/ 
Also, a compliation of some of his writings can be found here http://michaelbaruzzini.com/  
I know he would appreciate prayers for this new venture ! "

Please do take a look at this site if you are looking for--or will be looking--a resource for high school science.  It looks very promising!

Please note: on Michael's blog someone engages him a bit in a conversation on evolution.  This is often the making or breaking point when parents look at how this volatile subject is approached.  All I can say is that CatholicScience.com pledges full fidelity to the Magisterium of the Church in all the courses taught.
