About

Wasatch Learning offers hands-on science and engineering classes and events for homeschoolers.

Our Promise

Science is fun, and we’ll prove it!

Our Approach

  • Hands-on
  • Exploratory
  • Inquiry-based
  • Mentoring, not “teaching”

We believe science and engineering are best learned while doing, exploring, and wondering. Our classes are project-based to create a fun and meaningful learning environment, peak curiosity, and lay the foundation for student-led learning.

What’s “student-led learning?” That’s when students are learning because they want to. They’re begging to. Then a mentor just guides them along. That’s our goal.

Meet the Team

Laura 01

Laura graduated in 2006 from BYU Provo with a B.S. in Physics Teaching. She taught Physics as a student teacher at American Fork High School and 8th Grade Integrated Science at Lehi Junior High School before becoming a full-time mom. In 2010 she wholly converted to homeschooling and student-led learning. In 2015 Laura started Wasatch Learning with her husband Spencer to teach science and engineering classes for homeschoolers full-time.

Spencer 01

Spencer graduated in 2007 from BYU Provo with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. While at BYU, he competed on the Formula SAE racing team, and participated in two years of Mini Baja racing teams. After graduating, he worked 5 years at Hewlett-Packard and then one year at Mark Andy as an R&D engineer in digital commercial printing. In 2015 Spencer put his engineering career on hold to start Wasatch Learning with his wife Laura to teach science and engineering classes for homeschoolers full-time.
