Todays Class: Buoyancy on a Budget

Learn about buoyancy by creating your own boat that floats and moves while it experiences load. However, you must keep you building costs within your budget. Don’t sink!

 

Our Homeschool Class Mission

The mission of our homeschool class programming is to innovatively introduce or reinforce mathematical and scientific concepts to students in grades K-8 through inquiry-based hands-on learning. Students will be engaged as an individual or grouped in activities geared toward meaningful application.

In the spirit of the Lancaster Science Factory, students will create various manipulative pieces that they will be able to take home. They may be asked to participate in extension activities to further their knowledge.

All classes are based on the Standards Aligned System of the PA Department of Education. We strive to accommodate students’ individual needs and learning styles.
