NEW DATE Homeschool Happenings: Wildflowers of the Woods
April 12, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
We are excited to offer programs for Homeschoolers in 2017! Homeschool Happenings programs are designed for ages 7 – 10 and will occur the second Wednesday of the month unless otherwise noted. The typical program includes interactive and outdoor activities (weather permitting), crafts and games. These programs integrate scientific inquiry with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math).
Because of the need to prepare materials in advance, this is not a drop in program. Students may reserve a spot by CLICKING HERE TO REGISTER or by calling 740-587-2535.
