 One advantage of being a part of a really great homeschool group is getting wind of great opportunities for your child to participate in.

Today, my daughter spent 5 hours at Starbase, Winchester.  Starbase's goal is to raise the interest and improve the knowledge and skills of youth in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.  The class focused on aerospace engineering.  My girl is more interested in medical science but learning anything about science is a great opportunity.   They did many experiments and activities to include:  made a cushion car seat using a egg and various materials to launch in a plastic shuttle; lego rebotics; space communication using geometric shapes to simulate circuits; and a lot more.

The instructor is putting together another class with different experiments and we will definitely be there.  You can find out more here
