There are many ways for homeschooling families to learn at the HSMC Visitor Center. You can explore the Visitor Center's exhibits on your own, attend one of our public programs, arrange a private class for your homeschool group and/or attend our Homeschool Day events held in the fall and spring.

COVID-19 Update:

In our continuing efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19, especially among our more vulnerable staff, volunteers, and visitors – the Visitor Center is closed and all in-person education programming has been curtailed until further notice. Be sure to check back for updates and potential virtual homeschool opportunities!

Homeschool Day

Homeschool families are invited to experience marine science-themed activities to enhance their children’s learning. Our family-style Homeschool Day in the Fall allows participants from various age-groups to work together as a unit as they explore hands-on programs, while our Spring Homeschool Day allows students to share experiences with their peers through age-appropriate classes. 

Be sure to check back for program updates and potential virtual opportunities for Fall 2020!
