Scott Family Amazeum Hosts Homeschool Day on January 26

January 13, 2017

Homeschool families can explore museum, connect with one another 

BENTONVILLE, Ark. (Jan. 12, 2017) — The Scott Family Amazeum will host a Homeschool Day on Thurs., Jan. 26, from 9 am until 5 pm. Homeschool Days are an opportunity for these families to explore the museum together, learn how it can be used as a platform for learning, and network with other homeschool families in the area.

“As a family educational institution, we can offer a lot of learning opportunities for homeschool families,” said Mindy Porter, director of education at the Amazeum. “These days also provide us with insight as to how we can better help all of the families exercising different education opportunities in Northwest Arkansas.”

Homeschool Unfield Trips are available for January 26, and can be reserved by contacting Reservations at 479-696-9280, ext. 204 or reservations@amazeum.org. Unfield Trips must be reserved in advance, but general attendance on Homeschool day does not require advance registration or payment. Homeschool families are welcome to explore the museum on their own using daily admission or their membership. The museum also will open exclusively to homeschool families at 9 am.

Families participating in Homeschool Day will receive yellow wristbands so they can easily identify one another to exchange ideas and build a network of support. Attendees also will be able to check out Curiosity Kits to be used on campus during the day to enhance interactions with exhibitions and advance learning.

The next Homeschool Day is scheduled for April 27. To stay up-to-date on homeschool and educational events at the Amazeum, sign up for newsletters on Amazeum.org by clicking on the newsletter button in the upper right corner.
