Early Afternoon Explorers
Are you ready to do something DIFFERENT?
These monthly, hour-long classes for home schoolers offer explorers a chance to participate in fun, social and educational science programs! Each month's lesson will focus on a different topic, with hands-on activities and immersive learning experiences.
Classes are one hour long, and divided into age groups. The first expedition takes fledgling explorers (ages 6 to 9) on an engaging and interactive adventure of the basic scientific principles. More in-depth exploration is at hand for the more experienced trail-blazers (ages 10 to 12), in the second hour of the program.
Cost: Resident $10; Non-resident $12.50
Students can sign up for individual classes or the entire season.
All registrations must be made at least one day in advance.
