Homeschool STEAM Winter Program: Forensics

This program is designed specifically for homeschool families. Enroll your children for a series of four one-hour sessions on a variety of topics.

This four-week session dives into the world of scientific investigations. Stemming from the Latin forensis, which means “in open court, public,” this unique merging of science and justice relies on engineering, art, psychology, entomology, and more.  Discover the skills required to solve crimes while also proving innocence or guilt. Recommended for, but not limited to, children ages 6 to 12.

Register (4 week series)

Price: $30 per child. Families with two or more children: $30 first child, $25 for each additional child. Reservations requested. Call 413.443.7171 ext.360.
