The Virginia Museum of Natural History is dedicated to providing engaging science and engineering programming to homeschool students throughout the Commonwealth. Currently, the museum offers the Homeschool Science and Engineering Academy, a series of bi-monthly programs from September to May designed to supplement students' learning and knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) based topics. Additionally, the museum will work with homeschool groups individually to design and provide programming relevant to students' needs.
