HOME SCHOOL WORKSHOPS: MIDDLE SCHOOL
A drop-off program with lessons tailored to grades 6th-8th
We invite all middle schoolers in grades 6-8 to our Home School Workshops. Learners will participate in hands-on lessons designed to foster interests across science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. These workshops give students the chance to explore how all of these areas help shape our world while experiencing hands-on lessons with fun, immersive technology and programming. 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:
Book all 4 lessons for 1 month at the same time and receive 10% off the total price
