Science is so exciting, especially when you learn about the intricacies of the human body.  The depth and complexities of our universe are visible in even the smallest parts of our bodies: the heart, the liver, the brain.

Greg Landry, founder of Homeschool Science Academy and a 12-year-old veteran homeschool parent, recalls the excitement he felt when he discovered his love of science: “I vividly remember when I took my first human anatomy and physiology class. While I've had an interest in the human body since I was eleven or twelve years-old, it was during this college semester that I first began to understand the incredible complexity of the human body. I actually remember devouring the chapters in my anatomy and physiology textbook, amazed at what I was reading.”
