Homeschool

Join us for our NEW homeschool programs. Students will learn about a variety of topics ranging from biology, geology, chemistry, and physics to technology, engineering, robotics, & forensics. Join us weekly, monthly, or just pick your favorite topics, but register today because space is limited and programs sell out quickly!


Onsite workshops will be limited to a maximum of 15 participants to allow for social distancing. Families with multiple children are encouraged to reduce the number of adults in the classroom. Only one adult chaperone per family may stay in the classroom. Due to space limitations, non-participating students cannot be accommodated in the classroom. Member families may have another adult member in the museum exhibit areas with additional child non-participants. All children in the museum must be supervised by an adult at all times.

All attendees will have a touch-free temperature scan upon admittance. Anyone that is ill or experiencing any COVID-19 or other respiratory infection symptoms is asked to stay home.
Programs are $15 for IMAG member student participants or $24 for non-members. One adult per family may accompany student(s) in the classroom. Member adults and non-participating siblings may enjoy the museum’s exhibit areas during program hours.

We are offering a Makers’ Club just for Homeschool Students on the second Monday of each month from 10:00 am-12:00 pm.

Homeschool students will learn how to use Fab Lab equipment, such as the 3D Printer, Vinyl Cutter, and Laser Cutter, and have time to work on projects of their choice. The club’s purpose is to teach Homeschool Students skills they can continue to work on at home. 

Staff will be available to teach new skills and assist with projects students are working on during club hours.
