The Discovery Center invites Homeschooling families and groups to join us the first Wednesday of each month as we bring your homeschooling students’ Science Standards to life throughout the Discovery Center. Each month has a unique theme.
One of the biggest challenges for Homeschooling families is how to effectively meet and teach Science Standards when the last time many adults performed a science experiment was when they were back in high school.
This month we will explore topics including weather, climate, seasons, geology, and how each of these things relate and give our Earth its unique features and ability to host life.
Homeschool Day at the Discovery Center is a deep-dive day full of learning and hands-on activities about one science topic.
