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

$20 member

Book all 4 lessons for 1 month at the same time and receive 10% off the total price
