Homeschooler Programs at the Museum

The Montshire offers programs for homeschoolers to explore science in unique and fun ways.

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, healthy hand hygiene, as well as individual use and sanitation of materials and supplies.

Virtual Workshop Series

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.
