We are excited to once again offer our Homeschool Student Lab Day!

We do have a different registration and payment system this year, we have also looked real close at requested topics and ideas.  All sessions must be paid for upon registration, and no refunds will be available.  So please make sure to register only for the session you are able to attend.

Registration for each session is capped at 30 students (with Dec. capped at 10 students), and will close on Thursday, the week before at 11pm.  The sessions are AM (9:30-11:30) and PM (1:30-3:30)

This year’s fall topics include:

September – 7th Chytrid Testing
Chytrid is a fungus that is deadly to amphibians.  We will go out to Bader Park and get into nature (literly) as we search and find amphibians, swab them and send the vials in for testing.  This is a part of a citizen science project where data is gathered by you for real science testing! This was a big hit a few years ago, so by request we brought it back!

October – Arachanids
What is more perfect for October than Spiders!  We will have an arachnid expert here talking about spiders and some of their cool features.  We are awaiting a specific date from our scientist, so stay tuned!  Due to the Spider Scientist’s schedule, this is just an AM session.  Saturday the 21st will have him back as a part of our Super Science Saturday if the 19th doesn’t work for you!

November 16th – Genetics and DNA
So much of who we are is written in our DNA.  We will learn about DNA and what it can tell us, what it can’t tell us, and delve into how traits can pass from generation to generation.

December 7th and 8th – 3D Printing
3D printing and design is a very popular and interesting area of science right now!  This will be a special 2 afternoon class for students in 4th grade and older with space for only the first 10 students.  The event will be Thursday and Friday afternoon from 1pm to 4:30 and will take students into a free application where they can learn how to design and then print their creations on our 3D printer!
