Fairbanks Museum educators work with homeschool 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 of our regularly scheduled programs. To learn more, contact Leila Nordmann.
Homeschool Fridays for 2018/19
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 2019. Please sign up here.
For Friday, April 26th we are in the field that day from 12pm- 2pm with the science fair at the museum, 2:30pm-4pm
For Friday from 12-2pm, we will be at the St Johnsbury Town Forest to look for signs of spring. Work with us to spot the first plants breaking through the soil from coltsfoot to trout lily to spring beauties. We will see how the warmer weather and current rains have encouraged buds on the trees and caused possible erosion down to the Moose River that runs along the blue trail. Walk lead by Bobby Farlice-Rubio and Jody Hopp. Be prepared for mud with proper footwear. Please RSVP with Leila Nordmann. St J Town Forest has a parking lot off of Almshouse Road which is off of Concord Avenue across from the Fred Mold Park
Please sign up here for the homeschool science fair starting at 2:30pm. It will be held in our lecture room at the museum for up to 16 participants. Please click the following for information on the science fair, scientific method and judging rubic to be used at the science fair.
