    “I spent some time today going through the videos and looking at the resources. I can honestly say, especially after working with preservice elementary teachers in my science methods (and engineering for elementary teachers) classes, it is such a wonderful thing to have things that truly relate to the topics of the NGSS in an effective way.It’s hard to explain, but sometimes when I help steer students in directions so they can both find resources –and- learn about the content and relevant pedagogical practices of the NGSS, there are so many things out there that truly lead them more astray than anything…possibly causing misconceptions in the content or ways they could effectively teach it. I went in with a fairly critical eye, but was very pleasantly surprised. I really like your resources.” [-]

    “‎I teach 5th Grade at Pacific View Leadership Elementary in the San Diego Unified School District of this beautiful city. I stumbled upon Dr. Jeff and his Generation Genius educational website last school year when I was in search of additional support for our rigorous 5th grade Science curriculum that is aligned with the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).All my students LOVE this program, and I have been implementing this truly effective and AWESOME instructional aid as a supplemental resource to my science instruction. The kids LOVE the videos, and they are closely aligned with the new standards and expectations, as they include engaging and interactive video lessons, prior to/during/after lesson prompts/questions and vocabulary, as well as culminating assessment options including questions and exit-slip assignments for the students. I am happy this is available to help support my science instruction, and the kids really do love it! I have already begun implementing Dr. Jeff and his fabulous team's resources into my science instruction!” [-]

I’m super appreciative of the quick and helpful responses as we figured out the bizarre glitch I was experiencing.Fast forward to this school year: we are using this as a weekly family activity. Every Wednesday night we are doing a lesson together as a family. I have a 1st grader and 6th grader. The material is entertaining enough, both of my kids are very engaged despite not being in the advertised age range. And the biggest fan may be my husband who absolutely loves science and is having a blast sharing that with our kids!” [-]

    “I am a teacher for grades preschool through 6th grade at a small school in rural Eastern NC. I saw Generation Genius in Atlanta at the NSTA conference and was excited about the tie into the NGSS standards and an engaging alternative to random YouTube videos and my old VHS Bill Nye tapes. Many children are visual learners, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the videos from Generation Genius. The kids think they are funny, the concepts are presented clearly both verbally and visually and the episodes follow a logical progression.The teacher guides and hands-on activities are engaging and well thought out. I particularly enjoy the hands on activities, because they are open ended, affordable, and really support the NGSS Design principles. These are a very engaging introduction a lesson topic in my classes. They also make a wonderful emergency sub lesson plan. The length of the video allows time to watch the video, discuss the questions and begin the DIY challenge activity. The children stay engaged and don't zone out like they might with a longer video. I look forward to the middle school and lower elementary extensions that are coming. I also appreciate that the videos are closed captioned as I am hard of hearing and I appreciate being able to understand all of what is being shared onscreen when I preview the lessons for my class. These are very well done and an excellent teaching resource.” [-]

I homeschool a 7, 8, and 9 year old, and my 3 year old even joins in sometimes. There is a vast array of teaching information so you can go as simple or as deep as you prefer. My favorite is the before and after video questions. This way the kids can see the new information they have learned!

    “As a homeschooling parent, what I love most about Generation Genius is that it is multi-disciplinary. They watch the video, engage in discussion, make their flashcards of vocabulary words and quiz each other, and do the DIY projects. Participating in all of these different types of activities that employ different senses and styles of learning really helps them retain the information.I love that the discussion questions have the answers. This makes it easy for me to engage with the kids even if I haven't watched the video with them.The video engages all of my children from 2 to 10!I have 2 requests:1. That the vocab words be made into a pdf both in list format and flash card format so they could be printed double sided and cut up for easy flashcards.2. There be a purchase option instead of just a subscription. This would allow offline watching and be more economical in the long run for homeschooling families who plan to use it for multiple children over the course of many years.” [-]

  • “I spent some time today going through the videos and looking at the resources. I can honestly say, especially after working with preservice elementary teachers in my science methods (and engineering for elementary teachers) classes, it is such a wonderful thing to have things that truly relate to the topics of the NGSS in an effective way.It’s hard to explain, but sometimes when I help steer students in directions so they can both find resources –and- learn about the content and relevant pedagogical practices of the NGSS, there are so many things out there that truly lead them more astray than anything…possibly causing misconceptions in the content or ways they could effectively teach it. I went in with a fairly critical eye, but was very pleasantly surprised. I really like your resources.”

  • “My students loved the videos. I started the video subscription in May and used them as a review before the state test, which I know contributed to 100% of my class passing the state test.”

  • “‎This by far, was one of the best resources I have come across. My students, third grade, absolutely loved the videos and lessons. Everyday they would ask if we were going to generation genius! I highly recommend trying them out you will be hooked!”

  • “‎I teach 5th Grade at Pacific View Leadership Elementary in the San Diego Unified School District of this beautiful city. I stumbled upon Dr. Jeff and his Generation Genius educational website last school year when I was in search of additional support for our rigorous 5th grade Science curriculum that is aligned with the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).All my students LOVE this program, and I have been implementing this truly effective and AWESOME instructional aid as a supplemental resource to my science instruction. The kids LOVE the videos, and they are closely aligned with the new standards and expectations, as they include engaging and interactive video lessons, prior to/during/after lesson prompts/questions and vocabulary, as well as culminating assessment options including questions and exit-slip assignments for the students. I am happy this is available to help support my science instruction, and the kids really do love it! I have already begun implementing Dr. Jeff and his fabulous team's resources into my science instruction!”

  • “We signed up for the 1-year subscription after learning about this program. I stumbled upon this science program a few months ago and thought it would be a really neat addition to our homeschooling curriculum. My children 10, 8, 5 love the videos and have learned so much from them. Would definitely recommend this subscription!”

    Parent, Hinesville, Georgia
  • “Initially I had some tech challenges logging in but the customer service was STELLAR! I’m super appreciative of the quick and helpful responses as we figured out the bizarre glitch I was experiencing.Fast forward to this school year: we are using this as a weekly family activity. Every Wednesday night we are doing a lesson together as a family. I have a 1st grader and 6th grader. The material is entertaining enough, both of my kids are very engaged despite not being in the advertised age range. And the biggest fan may be my husband who absolutely loves science and is having a blast sharing that with our kids!”

    Robyn Willeford Krav

    Parent, Washington DC
  • “I bought this for my 8yr old son who loves STEM and STEAM. He and his younger brother who is 6 love to watch these videos and learn sooooo much!!! Thank you guys for providing this service!!”

  • “As a 5th grade science teacher, we are loving Generation Genius. Watched our first video this week and students were definitely engaged. The teacher resources that accompany the videos are very detailed and a huge help. I am excited to incorporate these videos into our curriculum this year.”

    Gina Dahlstrand

    5th Grade Teacher, Lawrence, Kansas
  • “My 4th grader loves this program because it’s silly and informative. He wants to watch it all of the time..which is amazing! Highly recommend Generation Genius.”

    Marybeth Kristen

    Parent, Long Beach, New York
  • “It was like you consulted with our district before making the videos. There is a video for every single science topic that we study. We watched another yesterday after the state testing was over. I told the kids that they could chill out and do what they want for a half hour, and they chose to watch a video.”

    John Otterstedt

    3rd Grade Teacher, Ridgewood, New Jersey
  • “Generation Genius is an excellent resource for teaching science. I teach in the Elementary Lab, and am able to work in so many of the topics to what I am teaching - they go right along with the standards! Students are engaged in the videos, the cast members are relevant to today's generation, and the content is presented in a concise and entertaining way that captivates them. The prompt customer service is fantastic as well. I highly recommend Generation Genius!”

    Julie Daniel Scott

    Science Lab Instructor, Macon, Georgia
  • “I am a teacher for grades preschool through 6th grade at a small school in rural Eastern NC. I saw Generation Genius in Atlanta at the NSTA conference and was excited about the tie into the NGSS standards and an engaging alternative to random YouTube videos and my old VHS Bill Nye tapes. Many children are visual learners, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the videos from Generation Genius. The kids think they are funny, the concepts are presented clearly both verbally and visually and the episodes follow a logical progression.The teacher guides and hands-on activities are engaging and well thought out. I particularly enjoy the hands on activities, because they are open ended, affordable, and really support the NGSS Design principles. These are a very engaging introduction a lesson topic in my classes. They also make a wonderful emergency sub lesson plan. The length of the video allows time to watch the video, discuss the questions and begin the DIY challenge activity. The children stay engaged and don't zone out like they might with a longer video. I look forward to the middle school and lower elementary extensions that are coming. I also appreciate that the videos are closed captioned as I am hard of hearing and I appreciate being able to understand all of what is being shared onscreen when I preview the lessons for my class. These are very well done and an excellent teaching resource.”

  • “What a great resource to tap into next year.”

    Jayne Seaman Allbee

    4th Grade Teacher, Mansfield, Texas
  • “We are just a few short weeks into using the program but my kiddos love it! I homeschool a 7, 8, and 9 year old, and my 3 year old even joins in sometimes. There is a vast array of teaching information so you can go as simple or as deep as you prefer. My favorite is the before and after video questions. This way the kids can see the new information they have learned! The content is presented in such a fun way that I would recommend this curriculum to a wide array of age levels. Generation Genius gets a 10 from me.”

    Sabrina Lucio Dye

    Homeschool Parent, Rockledge, Florida
  • “As a homeschooling parent, what I love most about Generation Genius is that it is multi-disciplinary. They watch the video, engage in discussion, make their flashcards of vocabulary words and quiz each other, and do the DIY projects. Participating in all of these different types of activities that employ different senses and styles of learning really helps them retain the information.I love that the discussion questions have the answers. This makes it easy for me to engage with the kids even if I haven't watched the video with them.The video engages all of my children from 2 to 10!I have 2 requests:1. That the vocab words be made into a pdf both in list format and flash card format so they could be printed double sided and cut up for easy flashcards.2. There be a purchase option instead of just a subscription. This would allow offline watching and be more economical in the long run for homeschooling families who plan to use it for multiple children over the course of many years.”

  • “My 5th graders love the videos! and I love that when I've emailed, it's Dr. Jeff that I actually speak with. He was helpful and amazing! love this stuff!”

    Joanna Hartman Brown

    5th Grade Teacher, Indianapolis, Indiana
  • “We signed up this year and all of my kids LOVE the videos! My kids are 10, 7, 5 and even my 2yr old likes to watch the videos. They are so fun they don't notice they are learning! There are tons of resources so you can make the lesson more in-depth if you like. There are PDFs that walk you through home experiments, a full lesson with a separate teacher guide, discussion questions before and after the video, vocabulary and a quiz. We homeschool so I love that there is such a range. My little ones are happy to just watch the videos and my older ones can dive deeper. Thanks Generation Genius!”

    Elizabeth Corrales

    Homeschool Parent, Lynchburg, Virginia
  • “We're on our 3rd week and the kids love it! My daughter literally said I love school this year so much better than last year.  Last year we used big-name science textbooks and she doesn't remember anything except how miserable she was doing science. She's back in love with science.”

    Heather Renee

    Homeschool Parent, Honolulu, Hawaii
  • “Just subscribed, and I have to say the videos are magical in the way they help kids to really understand concepts in a very practical way. I actually had to change the password because my kids were sneaking out of bed to watch these videos. Keep the videos coming. I would LOVE more topics.”
