Join us for our NEW homeschool classes. Available once a month throughout the school year, students will learn about a variety of topics ranging from chemistry to physics. Register today!
Each Class: $10 member /$20 non-member (1 child + 1 adult)
Ages 5-8: 10am – 12pm
Ages 9 -13: 12:30 – 2:30pm
Cancelation and Refund Policy
All classes require a minimum of 5 participants and have a maximum of 15 participants. The IMAG reserves the right to cancel classes that have not met our minimum enrollment. The registration/payment deadline for each class is the Friday prior to that class. After that date, there will be a $5 late fee per registrant if there is space. Parents may accompany their child in the workshop or explore the IMAG, but must be onsite. If the IMAG cancels a class, participants will receive a full refund. If a participant cancels a registration, they will receive a full refund if it is 30 days prior and 50% if it is at least 7 days prior. Any cancellations less than 7 days before a class will not receive a refund or credit towards another class.
Members must log-in to receive member discounts.
