Families that homeschool their children are invited to explore the field of Engineering at Homeschool Days, Thursday, Aug. 9, at the Environmental Education Center (EEC) at Veteran’s Oasis Park, 4050 E. Chandler Heights Road.

Homeschool Days will be held from 9:30-11:30 a.m. and is designed for families to learn together while exploring topics involving science, sustainability and the environment of the Sonoran Desert.

“Through lecture, experiments and projects, participants will explore the general field of Engineering, which helps make our daily lives easier,” said Ariane Francis, a recreation coordinator and manager of the EEC. “They also will investigate four subdivisions of Engineering; Civil, Mechanical, Medical and Environmental.”

The programs are designed for children and youth ages 5 to 17 and offer grade-specific activities that allow students to experience the adventure of learning through inquiry-based activities, investigations and technology.

The cost is $6 for homeschooled children living in Chandler and $9 for non-residents. Accompanying parents, chaperones and spectators attend for free.

To request a reservation for your school, group or homeschooled child, contact Ariane Francis by phone at 480-782-2886, or register at chandleraz.gov/registration.
