Homeschool Discovery Days
Designed specifically for homeschooled children ages 5-12, Homeschool Discovery Days are held once a month throughout the school year.
Each multi-disciplinary program has an emphasis on a variety of activities related to aviation and space. Students will explore these subjects through fun and fascinating hands-on activities.
Each session costs $20 per child.
