​​​​​​​Our homeschool courses and workshops are designed by scientists and educators to supplement homeschool science curricula through fun, hands-on science experiments and activities. A minimum of 6 participants is required for each course.


PLEASE NOTE: Due to several requests by parents and students, we have made the decision to more strictly adhere to the minimum age for each course. Students must be the minimum age indicated for a course in order to enroll. Hopefully we have enough options for each age group to satisfy your child's science interests. 


APRIL CLASSES - ELEMENTARY (AGES 6-8)​​


Science of Space: TelescopesMonday, April 23, 10:45am-12:00pm
Ages 6-8

Learn how light is affected by lenses, investigate how telescopes work by building a refracting telescope, and depending on cloud cover, look for sun spots using our solar telescope.
