Discovery Center Homeschool Days Begin Sept. 7

Written by: developer

The Space Foundation offers Homeschool Days at its Discovery Center in Colorado Springs one day each month during the school year, from September through June.

The homeschool program includes hands-on science activities linked to learning about space travel and the universe in the Lockheed Martin Space Education Center, plus lessons in the Northrop Grumman Science Center, featuring presentations on Science On a Sphere® where we explore the solar system and Earth systems. In El Pomar Space Gallery, students study artifacts and models depicting the story of historic and future space exploration.

The theme for the Sept. 7 homeschool program will be “Space in Your Life,” focusing on the ways our daily lives benefit from space technology. Hours are 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Activities are included in general admission to the Discovery Center, and offer a great way to meet other homeschoolers in the area.

Register in advance for Homeschool Days here. The Space Foundation Discovery Center is located at 4425 Arrowswest Drive in Colorado Springs, just off of Garden of the Gods Road. For information, call 719.576.8000.
