Forces of nature: Gravity

Explore the one of the most fundamental forces of nature. Gravity is what keeps our feet on the ground, the planets in orbit, and the tides turning. There is still a lot that we don’t know about gravity, but we engage with it everyday. In this class, you can expect to make some gravity-inspired art pieces, drop lots of things from high places, and even create and participate in a dramedy: Weighing On Me. Come get messy and very silly, while we get to know our most loyal companion: gravity.

This is a 6-week, 1.5-hour class series that meets once weekly. Recommended for grades K-2.

Potions: Solutions & Mixtures

Make solutions that squish, pop, and ooze as we explore the world of chemical reactions. Observe what happens when we mix different substances together: Does it change color, smell? Does it get hot? But that’s not all! All the while we’ll be learning the names of real scientific equipment and how to use them. We’ll practice weighing, measuring, and recording. Chemistry has never been so exciting!

Math Lab (K-2): Part 1

Did you ever think of math as being “hands-on”? Children are natural born scientists that learn by doing. Explore number relationships and build on the fundamentals of mathematical operations in this practical and collaborative addition to our homeschooling classes. Each week we will be focusing on a domain of the Common Core standards from K-2.

Math Lab (K-2) is designed to be an extension or supplement to the core mathematical instruction received at home. Math Lab (K-2): Part 2 is offered in the Spring.

This is a 6-week, 1.5-hour class series that meets once weekly. Recommended for grades K-2.
