Homeschooling Programs in Cleveland

The official school year is almost over and it’s been a long hard winter here in Cleveland!

If this feels like the longest homeschooling year ever and you are ready to get out of the house with the kids, Cleveland Kiddos will be providing you with plenty of ideas for field trips and learning opportunities.  There are several programs to be found specifically for homeschoolers around Cleveland.  I have started a seperate page linking to some of those places.  If you know of other homeschool programs that are offered in and around Cleveland, please let me know so I can add them!

One in particular is the Great Lakes Science Center.  They offer Homeschool Workshops designed to give children a fun and educational hands-on science experience .

Here are a couple that are coming up this month:

NEW! Homeschool Workshop: Wildlife Rescue – Animal Adaptations
Wednesday, April 16
1 pm – 2:30 pm OR 3:30 – 5 pm

Get to know animals on a whole different level as you experiment with animal adaptations through hands-on activities and become a scientist as you learn about the survival journey that many animals undertake. Do you know what happens when oil coats a bird or eggs? Can you save a species by creating a new habitat? Ages 6-12. $10.

NEW! Homeschool Workshop: Maker
Wednesday, April 23
1 pm – 2:30 pm OR 3:30 – 5 pm

Take on the role of an inventor as you enjoy a day full of contraptions, challenges and creativity where the only limit is your imagination. From conception to completion, learn how to take ordinary items and transform them into extraordinary inventions! Ages 6-12. $15.

The Great Lakes Science Center also has a new OMNIMAX film that I can’t wait to check out!

 Island of Lemurs: Madagascar. (Click the link for showtimes and other information.)

Also, be sure to check out some of their other exhibitions including their summer special exhibition  LEGO: Travel Adventure.

In our world, education doesn’t end when summer vacation starts, so no matter where your kids receive their education, stay tuned to Cleveland Kiddos for more updates and plenty of opportunities to learn and have fun with your kids in and around Cleveland!
