VMNH offers engaging science and engineering programs for homeschool students. Going into our third year, we had requests from participants and are expanding our offerings by scheduling two programs per month. Programs are held the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month from 10 to 11:15 a.m. Programs are divided into two age groups; 6-9 and 10-15.
A minimal fee of $6 is required. For those who would like to pre-pay and save some money, we are offering tuition at last year’s rate for either the full year or per semester. For one semester (nine programs), tuition will be $45 and for the entire year, tuition will be $90 (18 programs). By offering these options, we will be able to guarantee your registration in all programs and insure our minimum numbers are met for each session. Tuition will also include complementary admission to Student Days at VMNH for both Dino Days (in January) and Earth Day (in April).
*Pre-registration is required one week prior to each event by calling the museum at (276) 634-4185 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
