Homeschooler Programs at the Museum

The Montshire offers programs, series and special event days for homeschoolers to explore inquiry-based science.

Programs at the Museum

The Montshire Museum of Science offers unique programs to enrich your family’s homeschool curriculum with opportunities for inquiry-based science learning.

Through these multi-week drop-off programs, a small group of learners will engage in hands-on, creative exploration of science, technology, engineering, math and the arts at the Montshire.

All programs will accommodate current guidelines of mask-wearing, social distancing, and healthy hand hygiene.

Virtual Workshop Series

Register for multi-week virtual workshops, designed to engage learners in hands-on inquiry-based science at home.

Participants each receive a kit of uniquely chosen materials and supplies that support weekly inquiry-based activities focused on a STEM content theme. Montshire Educators provide live, on-screen engagement, where children are encouraged to share in their learning process and make discoveries with fellow learners, as well as weekly activities and prompts for off-screen exploration and extension of learning.
