The Woodlands Children’s Museum’s new course begins this September 

THE WOODLANDS, Texas – A new workshop coming to The Woodlands Children’s Museum this fall, excellent for homeschool students, is loaded with hands-on activities designed to ignite children’s interest in science.

EXTREME Science, part of the museum’s fall and winter workshop lineup, is available 9 a.m.-11 a.m. on Tuesdays, Sept. 11-Oct. 16 and Oct. 23-Dec. 11 for children ages 8-11. (Class will not meet Oct. 30 or Nov. 20.)

The course curriculum encourages children to delve into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) disciplines through engaging experiments and investigations, from rocket launches to rock sample studies.

EXTREME Science instructor, Robert Roach, an educator with more than 30 years of experience teaching science, will guide participants through the areas of chemistry, physics, geology and life sciences.

“One of the things we love about the EXTREME Science curriculum is it nurtures problem-solving and critical-thinking skills in children,” said Angela Colton, executive director of the museum. “The course gives them a safe environment to question, to experiment and to explore.”

EXTREME Science is $89 for museum members and $109 for non-members.

The museum is offering a wide range of workshops for children ages 2-11 during the fall and winter semesters. Course topics range from visual arts to dance to robotics.
