Home school: Eco-engineers

Ages 10+

Our oldest home school students will enjoy this program designed specifically with their interests in mind.  Learn the science behind why plants and animals behave the way they do.  Make tools out of natural materials, create a dam in the stream and study the effect it has on the surrounding ecosystem, and conduct other experiments that focus on the natural world and problem solving for the future.  Fun, recreational activities include hiking, orienteering with a map and compass, team building games, and more! (Please provide a snack for your child).
