Our homeschool courses are designed by scientists and educators to supplement homeschool science curricula through fun, hands-on science experiments and activities. Students can register as a course or as individual workshops. A minimum of 6 participants is required for each class. There is a 10% sibling discount for siblings registering for the same class.
SPRING COURSE SCHEDULE - January 28 - May 3, 2019 (12 weeks, no classes February 15-22, March 11, April 1-5 )
HIGH SCHOOL SCIENCE LABS Fridays, Feb 1-May 3 (no labs Feb 15, Feb 22, Mar 29, Apr 5) 10:00am-12:00pm Ages 14+ Students learn laboratory techniques and perform hands-on chemistry and biology experiments to supplement their high school chemistry and biology curricula. This is a lab-only course, and students are expected to know the academic material BEFORE attending each week’s lab (this is not a lecture course). A brief review of relevant material starts each lab, followed by a lab period which includes lab preparation, experimentation and clean-up. Students work semi-independently to conduct each lab, maintain a lab notebook and complete reports for each investigation. Course fees include all lab materials.
