The Museum of Life and Science offers a variety of 10-week classes for homeschooled elementary, middle and high school students. Each class meets once a week for two or three hours. Through these classes, we foster curiosity in the world around us, and the use of science as a tool for exploring that world. Topics rotate and include Nature Exploration, Genetics and Conservation, LEGO Engineering, and more!
Questions should be directed to Bjorn Hennings, Homeschool Program Director.

The TinkerTech series is a set of programs for all ages, skill levels, and areas of interest to give learners the opportunity to explore science through hands-on activities. We believe that that learning occurs most deeply through personally experiencing the world around us. With these ideas in mind, we utilize the Museum’s 84-acres of indoor and outdoor learning environments for inquiry-based and project-oriented activities during our programs.
