Local scientists and environmental educators bring a unique learning experience to area homeschool students.  Seven agencies and organizations will host a series known as the Homeschool Hopper:  Start a Riverlution.  The interactive series will focus on watersheds, aquatic habitats and human impacts to water quality.  Weekly hands-on sessions include biodiversity studies, investigations into microplastics, water quality testing, propagating living shorelines, and more!

 

Sessions will take place Fridays, 10 a.m. - noon, January 18th through March 1st. Each week, students will visit a different venue to learn from a diverse group of scientists and educators.  The course is appropriate for ages 10-14.  Cost for the 7-part series is $45 per student; $40 for each additional sibling.  For more information or to register, contact the Oxbow Eco-Center at (772) 785-5833 or oxbow@stlucieco.org.


The Homeschool Hopper program began in 2014.  Designed to teach a comprehensive Science unit through immersion and hands-on experiential learning, it has been a popular opportunity for area homeschool families.  The 2018 series, Start a Riverlution, is sure to exceed expectations with a record seven participating organizations.  These include the Oxbow Eco-Center, Smithsonian Marine Station, Heathcote Botanical Gardens, Savannas Preserve State Park, Manatee Center Observation & Education Center, and our two new partners, Indian River Lagoon Aquatic Preserves and Ocean Research & Conservation Association (ORCA).
