Spring Homeschool Classes

Spring Homeschool Classes occur every 3rd Wednesday of the month.

In our hands-on dissection labs, you can learn more about the structure and function of major body organ systems inner workings, including getting an up-close-and-personal look at some very unique animal adaptations.

Homeschool classes will be limited to a maximum of 15 participants to allow for social distancing. In order to maintain appropriate social distancing in the learning center, each student will work with their own specimen. Only one adult chaperone per family may stay in the classroom. Due to space limitations, non-participating students cannot be accommodated in the classroom.
