In October, we will continue our online homeschool classes. The classes will be a month by month subscription. Each month, a materials kit will be mailed to your home and will include some a list of some simple household materials your student will need for the class experiments.
The class will be every Tuesday and cost $50 for four classes and one kit. Members receive a 50% discount!
October Classes - 10/6, 10/13, 10/20, 10/27
Elementary Session 2:00 PM-3:00 PM
Middle School Session 3:30 PM-4:30 PM
Join us for our online STEM classes. Learn about crime scene investigative techniques, the rock cycle, chemistry, and water ecology. Students will experiment to visualize the concepts introduced during class.
Space is limited and reservations are required in advance. Please leave enough time for your materials to be mailed to you.
Week 1 - States of Matter: Explore the states of matter in a creative lab setting. The presentation allows students to differentiate between solids, liquids, and gases.
