Registration is filling fast for spring Homeschool Days in March – so fast that Oregon Sea Grant’s marine educators have added a second full day of hands-on ocean and coastal learning forpre-k through 12th grade-level homeschooled youth.
With theme of “An Ocean of Engineering,” the day-long program offers homeschooled youngsters from pre-k to 12th grade opportunities to learn about the ocean from an engineering perspective, from how to be sure a boat will float to protecting coastal buildings and shorelines from earthquakes, tsunamis and sea-level rise.
Oregon Sea Grant’s Marine Education staff teach this highly popular program, and added Friday’s session because Monday’s is almost full. The cost is $25/child; for more information and to register online, visit the HMSC Visitor Center’s Website.
