Virtual Classes

We are now online and bringing live virtual lessons for Classrooms and Homeschool groups in your own homes! 

Lessons are 60 minutes long and will be led by a member of our education team! Choose from our fun and engaging topics below that explore science using materials you are likely to already have at home!  


$260.00 for up to 25 students, groups with more than 25 students will require $6 per each additional student
Advance registration is required, payment due upon booking. Workshop fee includes the workshop and project materials for students. Prices subject to change without notice. An adult chaperone is recommended.

Ask us about discount options if you provide your own materials, or book multiple workshops in one transaction for special bulk pricing!

If you are interested in individual pricing or for groups of 10 or less, please check out our Virtual Programs.

For Classrooms

Your entire class can conduct a science exploration at the same time.  If you'd like a guest presenter for a portion of your sychronous instruction needs, don't hesitate to contact us!

Register via email. Please contact and provide your phone number and ideal date(s).

For Home School Groups

Home School groups love the online lessons!  The online platform is a great way to continue the social connections you've established.  Contact us if you'd like a single session or to discuss special pricing for a 5-class or 8-class series!

Register via email. Please contact and provide your phone number and ideal date(s).
