Check your state requirements for science. If your state requires Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, & Physics there are online options listed below or you. These can be added to Lamp + Light as an independent study for your high schooler, or done in lieu of the Lamp + Light science courses. These courses have beautiful textbooks that are free and downloadable. If your state requires a lab, those are linked for you as well.
