Enrich your homeschool curriculum through our new four-week long virtual homeschool science sessions. During each session, students will come together to explore a science topic in depth through hands-on lessons designed to spark their curiosity and ignite an interest in STEM. Our informal science education environment encourages students to ask questions, gain experience using scientific tools and make connections, both intellectual and social, through engaging experiments and activities. Virtual tours of select exhibitions each week are also included.
Each virtual homeschool session is four-weeks in duration with lessons occurring on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. via Zoom. A link will be provided the week prior to the start of the session.
