NEW for 2015-2016 School Year: STEM Clubs and Computer Labs

Sci-Quest invites families to participate in Home School Science, a program designed specifically with the home schooler’s needs in mind. We are offering a new format based on feedback from parents.

First, Sci-Quest is offering 8-week STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) clubs for elementary, middle, and high school students on Wednesdays throughout the school year. 

In addition, computer labs are offered for children ages 9 and up in Sessions I and II (early and late fall, 2015) and for children ages 11 and up in Sessions III and IV (winter and spring, 2016). These labs allow children to learn at their own pace.

STEM Clubs
This 8-week club format will allow students to go into depth on a number of STEM topics in a collaborative, student-centered environment. Each club features hands-on activities, make-to-take home materials and in many of the clubs, children have time to use what they have learned to design and create their own personal projects. All Home School Science courses are correlated to National Science Standards and Common Core.

Computer Labs
Children in these labs will progress (with help) through the activities and projects at their own pace – building their own personal skill set as well as computer skills. Labs will be held in Sci-Quest’s computer lab.

Classical Conversations
Sci-Quest is excited to be partnering with Classical Conversations home school groups to create coordinated programming throughout the 2015-2016 school year. These programs are specifically designed to go with the Classical Conversations curriculum, but are open to anyone who wants to participate. Using a hands-on inquiry approach, take home crafts and extension activities, these programs are an excellent reinforcement of concepts learned during the year.
