Family Science Investigation programs offer families an opportunity to participate together in science classes related to Museum research, including topics in biology, ecology, paleontology, geology, microbiology, chemistry and biotechnology. These classes are especially useful for homeschoolers looking for additional reinforcement to curriculum goals, or any family group that simply enjoys learning together!
