Looking for more scientific adventures for your younger home school children? Check out our Home School Academy and Maker Days workshops!

PATHWAYS: MIDDLE SCHOOL WORKSHOPS

A drop-off program with lessons tailored to grades 6th-8th

Program formerly called Middle School Home School Workshops

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

Sign up via our events page or call 850-664-1261. Please bring a completed registration form with you to your child's first workshop.
