​​​​​Our homeschool courses 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.
