About Make Science Easy


Make Science Easy is a science education website providing online science lessons. It's aimed at students who are preparing for their science GCSE or IGCSE examinations. Our courses can be used as revision aids for students, but it can also be used for students learning science for the first time, either through homeschooling or independent learning.

We pride ourselves on producing content that is both accessible and enjoyable. 


Why You should Choose Make Science Easy

We honestly believe that Make Science Easy provides the best online science courses around... but don't take our word for it! Sign up for our online courses and find out for yourself.

Our goal is to ensure the success of every single student who takes our courses. To give them all the tools they need to pass their science exams.

So How do we do this?

  • We break all our content down into small, bitesize pieces that are easy to understand.
  • Complicated concepts are explained clearly with examples and analogies.
  • Every lesson has a multiple choice quiz to test yourself.
  • Downloadable and printable lesson summaries are available for every lesson.
  • We have created a variety of resources to re-enforce all the key ideas covered.
  • Where appropriate, we have designed a range of experiments that can be completed in a safe manner to help develop scientific skills at home. These experiments also help to improve understanding of key ideas.
  • We have created a unique scientific literacy course which focuses on developing key scientific skills which are often neglected in school.

We also believe that learning should be a lifelong activity. Not just something completed in childhood. All of our memberships provide lifelong access to Make Science Easy, allowing you to catch up on what you have learned at any point of your life or to pass your membership on to a sibling or even a child.

What is next for Make Science Easy?

Make Science Easy is still a very young site. We've just completed our Scientific Literacy and Biology courses. Work has already begun on the Chemistry and Physics courses, and we aim to get these launched as soon as possible, but creating quality lessons takes time.

Once we have completed our first phase of GCSE courses, we want to add lessons for other science topics. We'll also look at creating courses pitched at post-16 education, such as A-Level and International Baccalaureate.

These are exciting times for us!
