Homeschooler Mondays

Homeschooler Mondays 2016-2017

Come join our education staff for an hour of self-directed learning in our galleries followed by an hour-long school program.  Afterwards, we are pleased to open our Atrium for homeschooled families to eat their lunches and visit.

We are excited to announce three new school programs in our Homeschooler Monday program! Thanks to our strategic partnership with Science World, we are pleased to introduce homeschoolers to: Building with KEVA, Green By Design, and Comparing Senses for both primary and intermediate groups!

We recognize that homeschooled families often have children of a variety of ages, so each Homeschooler Monday we will offer a primary program for ages 5-8 (grades K-3) and an intermediate program for ages 9-12 (grades 4-7) simultaneously.  We ask that parents of multi-child families attend the program with their youngest child.

Registration is completed on a first come-first served basis.  Registration may be completed the morning of the program, but we strongly suggest pre-registering to guarantee your child has a space reserved in the program.  Registration is limited to 24 children in the primary programs and 30 children in the intermediate programs.  Fees must be paid at the time of registration to hold your child’s space in the program.  Fees are $4/child for museum members and $5/child for non-members.

 

Daily Schedule:

10:00am -11:00am - Registration, sign-in and free time in galleries
11:00am -12:00pm* - Instructor led programs
12:00pm -1:00pm -  Atrium available for lunches and visiting

*Due to potentially smaller group sizes, programs may end slightly earlier than 12pm in some cases.
