Discover scientific inquiry of the last 4000 years with Sonlight's History of Science program

Pythagoras proved his famous theorem using a stick in the sand. No mathematical digits—they wouldn't be invented for over a thousand years.

A couple hundred years before Christ, Eratosthenes accurately calculated the size of the world using the angle of sunlight in a well on the summer solstice.

Newton compared the trajectory of an apple, a small terrestrial object, with the moon, a heavenly body, and wondered if maybe they were both subjected to the same force. Genius.

Einstein imagined spaceships traveling at near light-speed, and changed the way we view the world.

Explore the curiosity, egos, quirks, and flashes of brilliance from 4000 years of people seeking answers to how the world works. As your students read the stories of how scientists discovered scientific and mathematical laws, they acquire a deeper understanding of scientific concepts in physics, astronomy, and chemistry.

Clear, concise, elegant descriptions, and gorgeous illustrations make this lavish feast for the mind attractive and understandable.

Different books come from three perspectives: secular humanist evolution, creationist, and a surprising, scientific inquiry into evolution (not Darwinism) that demonstrates God's greatness. No other homeschool provider offers a similar program.

Your students will learn scientific thought to the present, including different perspectives so they will know the questions, and engage with a curious mind. With Sonlight J, your students will be prepared for further study, equipped with both humility and enthusiasm.

Although no school district requires "History of Science" as a subject, this program can be used as a World History course, and if you can fit this program in, your life will be richer for it.
