Homeschool Days

SCM's Homeschool Days is a monthly program for homeschool students and their families. Homeschool Days provides homeschool students with a fun-filled learning experience full of educational programming and museum play!


During Homeschool Days, one all-ages class is offered exclusively to Homeschool Students during the Museum's open hours. Classes are appropriate for Grades Preschool-2 and may include science, art, music, cultural, and/or literacy classes. 


For the 2018 Winter/Spring session, Homeschool Days classes will be held 1-2 p.m. every fourth Thursday of the month: January 25, February 22, March 22, April 26, and May 24. Registered students and their families are welcome to play in the Museum before and/or after the class session.

Class Descriptions

Registration is now open for our January and February Homeschool Days! Registration is required and closes the Friday prior to the class date.

January 25: Art Bots

Using the engineering design process of design-build-test-redesign, students will make robots that walk, jitter, and dance while drawing their tracks! This is an engineering activity which relies on critical thinking, trial-and-error, and creativity.
