This is the American Victory which is located in Tampa, Fl. 
I like to go to these museums because they teach our children and ourselves about our history. We have also been to the USS Alabama.  To learn more about The 

D Man and Ducky inside the front of the American Victory. 

This is a map of there voyage. 

DMan I don't think you can lift that,lol. This was a massive anchor. 

Ducky sitting where they sat to fight for our freedom. 

DMan ringing the bell, During the war they rang for each hour, to keep track of time. 

This was inside the engine room. 

DMan loves the guns, of course this was our children's favorite. Being able to touch is part of learning and they don't realize they are learning, I love that. 

Thank you to all of you out there that are fighting for our freedom. 
May God keep you safe and May his protection be upon you and your families.

My friend Suzanne is our guest post, she has written about her experience with Super Charged Science.

Aurora Lippora's Super Charged Science really inspires my 12-year old son, a budding scientist and hands-on learner.  He thrives on being in an independent learning environment where he uses his keen auditory learning skills through video instruction.  Luke has participated in some of Aurora's free monthly science experiments recently, one of which was a rocket project.  The rockets immediately caught his attention and his interest in Aurora Lippora's programs has grown.  Luke is enrolled in the summer e-camp of Super Charged Science and is loving his freedom to  conquer the lessons alone with the supplies I provided and the seamless video instructions that Aurora provides.  I'm impressed to see how long he spends on his science spiraling off into his tangents or modifications of Aurora's experiments.  I've been looking for that constructive thing to replace the adrenalin rush from video games.

Thank you Aurora Lippora! 

Luke is doing the ecamp this summer and this is the propeller car. 

Your kid can easily learn and do real science and be excited about it!

Are you a homeschool parent? You're a stay-at-home parent, working professional, or somewhere in between, who places a high value on education for your children. You want to make a difference in your child's life but struggle with teaching science and don't want to sell your child short.

Can you relate to any of these?

  • You don't have time to teach homeschool science, but really want your kids to learn it.
  • Science is just not your forte.
  • You get frustrated when you can't answer questions and wish you knew more about teaching science as a homeschool parent.
  • Your child is thirsty for more science, but you don't know where to start.

You know you want to...
  • Provide your child with an amazing science education they can't get anywhere else
  • Avoid spending hours learning all the material yourself?
  • Be able to provide your child with an exceptional homeschool science experience even though you have a limited science background or don't have the time.
  • Ignite your child's interest in science in a way that can last their entire lifetime
This is why I created Supercharged Science.

Because teaching Homeschool Science should be fun, not hard.

This is a close up of the propeller car. 
Luke created it enthusiastically alone and quickly ran to explain and show his completed work to mom and dad and sister.  

Luke created a spin-off of the propeller car. 

Created with a creative mind and the help of Super Charged Science. 

Super Charged Science  offers a Summer E-Camp and E Science. She offers science for all grade levels right from the convenience of your home. 

This project is called "The two versions of the catamaran".

Luke was fascinated by electrical components being able to work underwater in his bathtub test run.  And his home schooling mom was learning right beside him.  

He was so excited again that he incorporated this model idea into his own again modifying project, the "two versions of the catamaran" model cat by using a clear clay set container that snapped shut and sealed the motors keeping them from getting wet.

Our son was thrilled to experiment and learn with Super Charged Science, Thank you Aurora Lippora for blessing us:)

This recipe I got from my friend's blog

Ours was a little different:

Ingredients used:
1 can of black beans
1 can of refried beans
Walnut meat with taco seasoning packet
Fresh Guacamole

You just layered it starting with the Black beans, refried beans and walnut meat. Then add the guacamole and then the rest of your fixings. This was our dinner one night and it was very filling. 
We used Corn chips to dip. It was so good, Thanks Melissa:)


We were in Tampa for the day and decided to check out The Florida Aquarium. I was very happy with this aquarium. 

They had lots to explore. The Wetlands Trail had many animals from the wetlands such as turtle's, fish, and snakes. They had a program that was very educational about an owl,hawk and alligator. 

Ducky is standing in front of an aquarium with fresh water fish from Florida. 

The Burmese Python's are invading our everglades and killing some of our species that are native to Florida. One of our sons favorites!!!

They had a panoramic view tank that had sharks,turtles and fish in it. They had a program that they had divers in the aquarium with the sharks and fish. 

I thought this fish was very interesting, its a bat fish. I have never seen one of these fish. Amazing, it doesn't even look like a fish. 

These pictures were taken in front of the shark tank. 

This sting ray would come right up to the tank and say hello:)

They had a sting ray touch tank that you could touch the sting rays. This was our children's favorite part. They love touching these gentle creatures. 

They had a No Bone Touch Tank which had star fish, sea anemones and sea cucumbers that they could touch. 

They had a whole area of Ocean commotion. This area was filled with all kinds of fish,octopus,seahorses and much more. This was end of our adventure at The Florida Aquarium. A delightful day of learning. I love these opportunities to learn and have fun with each other. I was excited to get science in for the day:)
