This exciting new once a month program gives homeschool students hands-on science experience to reinforce topics and skills being taught at home. Led by 2 environmental educators, the students will be introduced the topic of the day and then divided into groups for age appropriate activities. Families will receive a class itinerary with topic information, vocabulary, and topic extensions for home discussion. This program is drop-off only and 2 hours in length.

We begin this class discussing how fire can be seen as both beneficial and harmful, and we will discuss the benefits and problems associated with fire as well as the role that fire plays in maintaining healthy ecosystems. The second half of the class students will become water droplets transitioning through solid, liquid, and gas.
