Tuesdays are for homeschool students!
Homeschooling is a path toward academic achievement and consistency. Join our education team for insightful and inspiring learning that delivers core concepts and keeps students seeking more. Fairbanks Museum educators work with homeschool families to offer a range of learning activities that explore natural history, astronomy, weather & climate, and other STEM topics.
Homeschool Day is dedicated to families seeking STEM enrichment outside of a school environment. Each Homeschool Tuesday includes 1-hour guided learning with an instructor plus an independent Naturalist’s project (artifact from our collections for illustration or close examination, treasure hunt, puzzle, or other self-directed activity). Because space in these programs is limited, students must be registered and paid in advance for each Homeschool program.
Our focus is on experiences that make learning fun and memorable for grades K–8. Homeschool families can come individually or in a group to join one of our regularly scheduled programs. We encourage parents to come with their children for the museum classes, and every child must be accompanied by an adult on field excursions. If health concerns require more virtual learning, we’ve got that covered through a variety of age-appropriate live stream and recorded programs.
Register online and pay in advance to secure you place. Your total cost will reflect the number of students and the number of programs you select — enter this amount in the custom field if you choose to pay for each program. Homeschool Membership offers the most cost-effective way to take advantage of our programs. If the program you’d like to take is full, please send an email to Karina Weiss to be placed on a waiting list.
