MUSEUM SCHOOL FOR HOMESCHOOL CLASSES
Museum School offers discovery-based science and history classes that are enriched with Museum specimens or artifacts, creative activities, science investigations and other hands-on explorations where appropriate to the topic.
The fall session for school-age children will begin in mid-October and will include Saturday classes as well as a few Friday classes. Because Museum School is an informal science discovery program, all classes – including the Saturday programs – are open to school-age children who are in homeschool and traditional school settings. Classes are offered in a one-time format on specific dates.
Museum School offers its current class brochure online only. Click on this PDF link to download the Fall 2014 class brochure. The brochure has complete class listings, descriptions, dates and fees, plus registration instructions.
If you have any questions call 817-255-9335 or send an E-mail with your name and question to firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you and your family soon!
