About The Event

Lessons tailored to grades 6th-8th

We invite all middle schoolers in grades 6-8 to our brand new Home School Workshops. Learners will participate in hands-on science lessons designed to foster a life-long love for science. Each month in our workshops we'll explore a new topic. At every session, students can expect a fun and different lesson from week to week. Each session builds off one another, so it is recommended students attend all sessions for the month.
