Our Homeschool Science Classes are finished for this year, but will be coming back in the fall!

Homeschool Full Day Workshops

April: Microscope Madness
Take a closer look at the little things. Explore with microscopes and use them to search for living creatures in moss, look at bacteria, and explore how germs spread. Learn about micro-plastics and how small toxins accumulate as they make their way up a food chain.

May: Salmon Style
Today we’re doing things salmon style. Follow these fish from sea to stream in a salmon migration obstacle course, and learn about their life cycle. Design your own board game to help salmon make it upstream, protect your eggs from predators, and play the salmon life lottery.
