About The Event
We invite all middle schoolers in grades 6-8 to our Pathways program. With these workshops, home school students will design, build, and test new challenges every week. These challenges will help students explore career pathways across STEM disciplines. 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.
Classes scheduled every Wednesday
1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Cost per session: $25 nonmember
Book all 4 lessons for 1 month at the same time and receive 10% off the total price
