HOME SCHOOL PROGRAM - Age 5-10 years



Winter Voyagers is a virtual program where we will be learning all about engineering feats of the natural world. While understanding animal engineers, you will be inspired to sharpen your own skills.

During the last four weeks of winter, let’s enjoy experimenting, crafting, and consciously helping the natural world around us while learning about the cold and snowy climate.  We will brainstorm about the things that make winter so special, investigate what different kinds of animals do during these icy cold months, and even start to think about what changes will come following the Spring Equinox.

1:30-2:30 on Friday afternoons
February 26, March 5, 12, & 19

For ages up to 10 years old

Members:  $54 for first child, $36 for second child per session
Nonmembers:  $60 for first child, $40 for second child per session
