Science Detectives: Traversing the Tropics


Join NCMNS on the second Wednesday of the month (October, November, and December) for classes designed especially for homeschool and track-out students. These 90-minute classes allow us to delve deeper into topics and incorporate additional learning experiences.

Embark on a journey towards the equator! We’ll travel the globe and explore some tropical habitats while meeting some of the animals and plants that call them home.

Participants must be 5-7 years old for this program. This is a drop-off class. Parents will not be allowed to attend the class with their child but do need to remain in the Museum.
