Home School Resources

Homeschool families,

We have a variety of options available to support the science instruction you offer at home! If you become members, you can best utilize the resources we have to offer. Consider the following resources we have available:

Museum Exploration

The variety of content and concepts in our galleries make a visit to DCS the perfect enhancement for your science curriculum. Enhance your museum visit even further by visiting during one of our special event days scheduled throughout the year these can be used to supplement your curriculum!

DCS Book Club

Book clubs are available each month to support content reading. Use our list, or find your own titles that correlate to the monthly Exploratory Lab theme. Come in at any time during the month and do the lab activities, get your book club card punched, and earn a prize! 

Science Sprout Museum Days

Because we believe you're never too young (or too old) to learn science, we have set aside days dedicated to our early learners. If you have a child from birth to age 6, our Science Sprout Museum Days are just for you! No field trips will be scheduled for groups over the age of 6, so you don't have to worry about your 2 year old getting over ran by a group of rambunctious 12 year olds! Our BrainByte demonstrations will be geared specifically to early learners, with a different topic each month.

Be sure to join us for Science Story times at 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., only available on Science Sprout Museum Days. Check Science Sprout Museum for days and themes.

Workshops 

Discovery Center offers a variety of workshops from our Robot Workshop and Dissection Workshops— which encourage a child/parent duo family learning opportunity— to our Summer Workshops, which is drop off situation with a variety of themes to choose from.

Co-op classes

DCS can bring a one-hour, hands-on, inquiry based science lesson to a site of your choice! Gather a group of 10 or more similar-aged students, choose your topic, make your reservation, and you're done! One of our highly qualified DCS educators will come to you and teach the lesson; parents can sit and watch the learning occur! There are over 20 different topics and different age levels to chose from.
