The Fredericksburg Area Museum (FAM) is pleased to announce Homeschool Investigators, a new program designed especially for homeschool students and educators. Homeschool Investigators focuses on hands-on learning through teamwork, collaboration, and problem-solving STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities. FAM’s homeschool programs are designed for children ages of 5 – 14-years old with a range of learning abilities and styles.
The FAM invites families to attend the first Homeschool Investigators program, Bridging the Past on Wednesday, October 19th. Participants explore FAM’s galleries to discover the history and science behind Fredericksburg’s bridges. Families become architects and engineers as they design and test their own bridges. Will your bridge stay up or topple down?
Those interested may sign up for the 10am -11:30am or the 1pm – 2:30pm session. FAM welcomes all children accompanied by an adult over the age of eighteen. Program tickets are $5 for FAM members and $8 for non-members. All attendees over the age of three must purchase a ticket. Tickets are available for purchase at https://fredericksburg-area-museum.square.site/.
