Homeschool Drop-In Program: ENERGY

  • 27 Feb 2018
  • 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Homeschooling families - want to get outside on a science expedition, meet other families, and learn about a topic in-depth with hands-on exploration? We are starting a new drop-in program the last Tuesday of the month. Each program will dive into a different topic, and the curriculum is designed to enrich and expand on STEM standards. $5 for a family if you're a member of Tanglewood; if you're not yet a member, $7 for the family. 

Energy: We'll jump into the different kinds of energy, what kinds of energy we use in our bodies and in our homes, what "non-renewable" means and how it impacts our lives. Use thermometers to measure heat energy, and harness the power of the sun! See how much energy Tanglewood's solar panels are generating, and learn about our geothermal system too. We will also discuss how animals conserve or expend energy during a live interactive animal show highlighting different species. You'll end the day with a little burst of energy yourself.
