Rebecca W. Keller, Ph.D., incorporated Gravitas Publications Inc. in 2003 to develop and publish core sciences curriculum under the Real Science-4-Kids  imprint. She has authored and published Real Science-4-Kids student texts, teacher manuals, and student laboratory workbooks in chemistry, biology and physics to serve kindergarten through ninth grade, available through mainstream and home school book distributors.
Gravitas textbooks are used as home school texts in all 50 states and in six foreign countries, winning a 2008 Readers award from Practical Homeschooling magazine in the category of science-elementary. More than 30 private and public school systems also use Real Science 4 Kids curricula.
In 2008, Keller wrote and directed the development of a series of interdisciplinary companion texts called Kogs-4-Kids , which show how science is connected closely to all other areas of study and how it affects everyday life. The categories for the Kogs series are: history, language, philosophy, arts, technology, and critical thinking.
Although professing to be an advocate of “open inquiry” in science, Keller is a proponent of intelligent design. She has often spoken at intelligent design conferences about and provided testimony for allowing students to “critically evaluate” all scientific data that support and/or oppose scientific conclusions.
Her view has been summarized in her GravitasGeeks blog as: “In the sciences, let’s teach what we know, and admit what we do not actually know. Let’s train children to explore authentic inquiry, evaluate the evidence, and decide for themselves what conclusions they might draw. There is nothing more important for children studying science than to learn to ask ‘What if?’ and then to be free to follow the data wherever it leads.”
