Homeschool Open House at The Woodlands Childrenā€™s Museum.
Area families are invited to take a sneak peek at the innovative, hands-on workshops coming toĀ The Woodlands Childrenā€™s MuseumĀ this fall during aĀ Homeschool Open House from 10am-Noon, Monday, Aug. 13.

The museum offers workshops for children ages 2-11. Class sizes are limited to ensure a small student-teacher ratio, and the workshops are presented by experienced educators with a talent for piquing childrenā€™s natural curiosity.

ā€œOur workshops are designed to be a feast for the senses: interactive adventures that nurture childrenā€™s love for play and discovery whileĀ buildingĀ studentsā€™ confidence,ā€ saidĀ Angela Colton, executive director of the museum. ā€œThese workshops also support our vision of supporting area families by providing them with cost-effective, conveniently located opportunities to help their children grow and explore.ā€

The workshop instructors, along with Educational Coordinator Katie Lundquist, will be on hand throughout the open house to answer parentsā€™ questions.

Parents are encouraged to explore the instructorsā€™ stations to get a feel for the innovative curriculum that guides each class. Instructor KevinĀ Borey, for example, will be presenting stations to introduce visitors to the museumā€™s robotics workshops.

These classes range from LEGOĀ® Frenzy Meets Righteous Robots, where children ages 5-6 get to make their own programmable robots, to E.A.R.L.Y. Robotics, which gives childrenĀ agesĀ 7-10 experiences in robot design, teamwork and robotic competition.

The open house also will feature displays that highlight the Extreme Science workshops, which are presented by Robert Roach, an educator with more than 30 years of experience teaching science. Extreme Science challenges children ages 8-11 to embark on fascinating investigations into the earth, life and physical sciences.

Additional displays will showcaseĀ ARTistikĀ Adventure, multisensory experiences in which children ages 5-10 experiment and create with a variety of medium, and Got Science?, six-week sessions for 4- and 5-year-olds where touching and getting messy are not only allowed ā€“ theyā€™re musts.

Beverages and snacks will be available throughout the Homeschool Open House.
