Learning at Home
Science, experiments, and excitement for your individual child or learning pod!
We know the learning landscape is changing and adapting can be difficult for many families. As a result of these adjustments to everyday learning, the Museum is thrilled to engage your child through new virtual classes to enhance their understanding of STEM from home. These classes are developed with grade levels in mind and come in a variety of formats. These 1-hour weekly workshops are led by experienced Museum Educators and materials for each week are included.
Lessons are designed by grade levels to keep your child’s academic readiness and growth in mind as he/she participates in each class. Programming grade levels are K–2 and 3–4; meet State Learning Standards; and have premade materials packaged for each individual.
Each series will have a theme to cover different levels of STEM.
- “Up, Up, and Away” where participants will explore how things fly and build a variety of flying machines!
- “Heroes in Flight” is designed to commemorate and celebrate pilots from all walks of life and their achievements – learn their stories, be inspired by their accomplishments, build your own aircraft models, and dream of you tomorrow!
- “Science in Motion” invites participants to learn science surrounds you every day! From the games you play, amusement park rides, and even rocket ships all rely on principles of science. Build a simple rocket ready for launch, discover the science of carousels, and more.
- “To the Moon” will have little astronomers ready for the skies as they learn about our nearest neighbor, the Moon. Learn about craters, understand why Earth has seasons, and engineer a Moon lander.
