Home School Groups
Fairbanks Museum educators work with home school groups to offer a range of learning activities, making use of our amazing museum galleries, our extensive outdoor campus in Danville, and other environments in St. Johnsbury. Our focus is on experiences that make learning fun and memorable for learners in grades K – 8.
Homeschool families can come individually or in a group to join one or more of these regularly scheduled programs.
Please contact Leila Nordmann, Program Director, to find out more.
Home School Days for 2017/18:
**New Homeschool Membership for 10 months of Friday classes for $50 per child.**
This membership is for homeschool students attending homeschool Fridays only. It does not count as a museum membership. From the time you sign-up, it will be good through June 2018. Please sign up through the museum's front desk or through Leila Nordmann.
September 29th: Field Program from 12-2pm at the Danville Town Forest
Meet up with museum educator Bobby to take a walk through a meadow and forest where the old Danville town farm used to be located. He will discuss the history and impact people have made in this space over the last two hundred years. We will then walk through a forested area looking for signs of animal activity and what plants are in bloom at the end of summer.
