A word about our program:
This is a chance for middle and high school aged HomeSchoolers to explore biology topics: using a microscope, classification and using a biological key, culturing bacteria, dissections – flower, worm and frog.

Since HomeSchool families are a “package deal” and often bring the whole clan, we are offering things to engage younger children during that time as well; also along the biology lines: We’ll look at things like oviparous (egg laying), animals, life cycles of butterflies and frogs, animal tracks…

Jr. Explore for grades 2-5 and

Storytime for pre – grade 1.
