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.


FALL COURSE SCHEDULE - September 10 - December 10, 2018 (12 weeks, no classes October 8, or November 19-23)


HIGH SCHOOL CHEMISTRY LAB 
Fridays, September 14-December 7 (no class Nov 23) 

10:00am-12:00pm
Ages 14+
Students learn laboratory techniques and perform hands-on chemistry experiments to supplement their high school chemistry curriculum. 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 two-hour 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. This is the first semester of a full year course.   


  • Ideal Gas Law - In this lab, students investigate relationships among pressure, volume and temperature of a gas. Friday, November 30, 10:00am-12:00pm 

  • Polymers - Evaluate IUPAC naming of the essential components of slime, and use calculate the relationship among moles, Avogadro’s number and final mass. Friday, December 7, 10:00am-12:00pm

Instructor: Alyson Colin, MSc

Location: STEM Lab (suite 21)

Ages 14+
Students study biological systems and processes at molecular, cellular and macrobiological levels through hands-on laboratory investigations. 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 1.5-hour lab period which includes lab preparation, experimentation and clean-up.

  • Grasshopper Dissection - Examine the exoskeleton and internal organs of this insect, measure anatomical structures and make connections between organ size and appearance with function and purpose.   Friday, November 30, 12:30pm-2:30pm

  • Fish Dissection - Study the anatomy and physiology of bony fish to describe fin placement and function, and explore how the respiratory system is appropriate for a life underwater.  Friday, December 7, 12:30pm-2:30pm

Instructor: Alyson Colin, MSc
