Observe, discover, and explore phenomena in the natural world as a scientist does, through this monthly virtual series for homeschool students. The first Thursday of each month, a seasonal topic is introduced and students are given an outdoor investigation to complete at home. The investigations use materials readily available at home and are suitable for different age groups. On the second Thursday of each month, students share their observations and discoveries, and meet a live animal related to the topic. Students may complete monthly journal pages and explore additional resources on the homeschool series private webpage. Each program will be recorded and available to view for a limited time after each program. An adult must participate with each child or children at no extra cost. The virtual sessions will be held via Zoom, with links provided upon registration. Advance registration and payment required.
Cost: $9/member child; $11/non-member child per month; or $18/member family; $22/non-member family per month
