I first learned about Rock-it science while surfing the Internet for hands-on science projects to do with my son. I was so impressed with the program that I decided that I wanted to bring it to the students at the school where I teach. I flew out to California to meet John and was blown away by his love for teaching children science. He has developed a fun, inquiry based and hands-on way of teaching scientific principals. I have taught two summer classes at our school in Michigan using John's program and have seen first hand how excited students get about learning. The stories pull them in and the experiments keep them coming back for more. The parents of my students rave about how much their children are learning about science and their enthusiasm to keep learning. I highly recommend this program.

Rockitscience under the guidance of John McChesey has been providing inquiry based science experiments for children and youth. His lessons include a fun story that strikes the students imagination and challenges them to explore and in doing so they discover the patterns of the underlying principles of the very lesson he is teaching with the experiment.
As an upper grade elementary teacher, every time I have seen John's lessons, I come away with inspiring activities to teach my students. I have known John since 1993, when I first saw his lessons at Reed Elementary when he taught science enrichment in my then second grade daughter. After 18 years my 25 year old daughter and her friends still remembers Mr. Mac's science lessons.
Rockitscience is a unique science school that recognizes the ability of children to discover via exploration and the wisdom of the inquiry process.
