Home schools

Student examining lichen at University of Arizona Plant Sciences exhibit.

We think that a school is a school, a student is a student, and a kid is a kid, no matter the educational setting! We have duplicated below a few of the most relevant Frequently Asked Questions that also appear on the Teachers page – however, everything you’ll find under the Teachers page applies to you, too.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can home school groups apply to attend?

Absolutely! All homeschool groups may apply for their Grade 4-8 students to participate. Some organize groups within their homeschool affiliation and others participate independently. Check with other homeschoolers that you are affiliated with to see if they are applying.

Can we apply for groups other than grades four through eight?

We target grades four through eight because studies show that students in that age range often lose interest in math and science. We want to reinforce how cool math and science can be to this age group. Our programming will reflect that target age group. We will only be taking applications for that age group, but since Arizona STEM Adventure 2020 will be held virtually, others in the home or classroom can participate if interested.
