The Science Museum of Minnesota is offering Homeschool Science Clubs, a new, once a month event. With a different theme each month, these clubs are intended to engage kids in science, math, and technology with fun, hands-on activities.
The next Homeschool Science Club, Natural Disasters, is Friday, November 4th from 1-4 PM. Kids ages 5-13 are welcome to explore the world of natural disasters. SMM will have age-appropriate activities for each grade level: 5-6 year olds will put their hand in a tornado, watch a volcano erupt, and make earthquake-proof buildings. 7-9 year olds will model earthquakes, experiment with different types of magma and visit the museum's new Nature Unleashed exhibit. 10-13 year-olds will conduct online research on tornados, flash floods, wildfires, or earthquakes, and then learn how to make a computer presentation on the natural disaster they choose to research.
Fee: $28 ($25 for Science Museum members)
The next Homeschool Science Club, Game Theory, is scheduled for Friday, December 16, 2011.
