Individual K-12

Science Lab Workshops

We are very excited to introduce our NEW science lab workshops for K-12th grade students. Each series consists of monthly workshops chock full of interesting, hands-on, science labs that can complete your at-home, or co-op, science curriculum. These workshops are perfect for busy homeschool families who enjoy participating in engaging labs with other homeschooled students, all while avoiding the planning, prep-time, and mess. 

INDIVIDUAL- ELEMENTARY SCIENCE WORKSHOPS

K-4th and 4th-6th

These individual workshops are designed to excite and inspire science exploration in young elementary students all while providing busy homeschool moms free time to spend as they see fit. An added benefit is that you can choose to do them all or just a few. Each workshop is a stand-alone science session.  Students will receive an introduction to the topic, participate in a lab/project, take home their class work, receive a summary sheet explaining the class, receive an activity sheet to do at their leisure, and enjoy a fun, hands-on experience.

What is the difference between the two grade levels other than class time & age? The older (4th-6th) workshops will have more writing and a more complex variation of the same topic. 

No homework, no prep work, no additional registration or lab fees.

Topics include: color, bats, sound, stars, magnets, geology, birds, plants, and oceans.
