Homeschool Inspired by Nature – Nature’s Form & Function @ Bonnie W. Noble Center

The PlayHouse offers STEAM Homeschool classes at the Bonnie Noble Center in which students explore topics and activities related to science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics.

Advance registration is required.
