Homeschool workshops are offered the 2nd Thursday of the month from 2:30-4 PM October-May. To avoid disappointment, reservations are strongly recommended. Price/workshop: $15 for first student in family; $10 additional students in same family; one adult in family FREE; $15 each additional adult
This year, we are presenting each level as a unit. However, each workshop can stand alone and it is not required that a student participate in any of the other workshops. For a list of the upcoming Homeschool Workshops, visit our calendar.
Level 1 - From Earth to the Universe
This unit will explore Earth and its relationship to other objects in our solar system, our Sun and its relationship to other stars, and our galaxy and its relationship to other galaxies. Learn about where Earth fits into the universe in these hands-on workshops.
Level 2 - Astronomy and Space Exploration
Leverage the equipment of the Discovery Center and the knowledge of its educators as we investigate what it takes to put together a successful space mission. Team work is a key factor that is emphasized in these sessions.
Level 3 - Waves and the Electromagnetic Spectrum
This unit will take advantage of the Discovery Center's new optics and spectroscopy lab, telescopes, and HAM radio equipment. Hands-on activities will promote understanding the concepts in this exciting unit about waves.
Though the sessions build on each other in terms of theme, any session can be attended on its own.
