Welcome all inquisitive minds! Once again, we will be offering a different science class each month to our homeschool families. The classes are designed for students in 1st-8th grades. They are 2 hours long starting at 9am-11am. If the weather cooperates, most classes will take place outside. Families will stay together as a unit and rotate to [approximately 6] activity stations. Each station will contain detailed instructions and it will be up to the parent/guardian to explain and help their child(ren) with the activity at that station. All activities are hands-on and sometimes quite messy!
There will be a $20 materials fee for each family unit, for the entire year, and this will register you for all 9 classes. Payment will be due at the first class. Class size is limited to 20 family units. Details about each class will be sent out the week before, along with any background knowledge you might need to help facilitate the learning. We ask that you bring a writing utensil, water to drink and wear closed-toe shoes.
Although the classes are full (registration takes place in May for the following school year), we open up additional space for each class at the beginning of each month. Use the button below to register.
Further details coming soon! (We will update in June 2021 as we build out the lessons for the fall.)
