Homeschool Days

Homeschool Days are the perfect addition to any homeschool curriculum! There are two ways to attend Homeschool Day: by booking your very own Unfield Trip visit to the Amazeum, or by exploring on your own. Only homeschoolers will be able to reserve Unfield Trips on Homeschool Days, so this is another great way to have fun and meet other homeschool families and students! Advanced registration is required. 

Virtual Homeschool Day: Whoa! Wednesday 

Virtual Homeschool Day is back on March 3, 2021! Join your favorite Amazeum team members virtually to mix, experiment, and get messy with science. Throughout the day we will focus on a different experiment, use a variety of ingredients to concoct all sorts of potions, mixtures, and messes, and answer the wonderful question "what happens if...?".

Virtual Homeschool Day is a fun way to connect with other homeschoolers while previewing and learning about upcoming programs, like Homeschool Adventures Series and get a sneak peek of Summer Camps! 

Homeschoolers will receive a special 20% discount in Curiosity Corner museum store during Homeschool Day. This discount is available for in-store or online purchases. For online purchases, use the discount code "Homeschool" when completing your purchase. Code is valid only on March 3. 

Virtual Homeschool Day is free; however, advance registration is required for each family in order to receive the supply list and link to the virtual call. Register for one, two or all three activity times!

Homeschool Adventures

Join our new 4-week series, Homeschool Adventures! In this child drop-off program, each weekly experience explores concepts of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) through creative, hands-on explorations. During each series, we scaffold our adventures from week to week, adding a deep-dive, interactive component/experience to your homeschool curriculum.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have modified the in-person workshops at the Amazeum. Workshops will have a reduced capacity of 10 Homeschool students and 2 Amazeum Educators per workshop. Homeschoolers and Educators will be required to wear face coverings during the workshop. Homeschoolers will be given a kit which will include all supplies needed to complete their discoveries – no sharing required! After the program, Amazeum educators will clean and sanitize the kits. For more information, check out the Homeschool Adventures FAQ sheet

Advanced registration and payment required. Registration links available soon in chart below.

Fee per Homeschooler: $60 Amazeum members/$70 nonmembers

Each Homeschool Adventures series is designed for ages 6-11.
