The Scientific Method for Homeschoolers
An Adkins Arboretum Event
Uncover the fascinating origins of modern science with a glimpse into the past. Homeschool students will journey from the birth of science in ancient Mesopotamia to science in the 21st century, with stops along the way in ancient Greece, the Middle Ages, the Scientific Revolution, and The Age of Reason. Delving into the components of the scientific method, students will learn key scientific vocabulary and conduct experiments. Students will use their newfound knowledge in the field, working in teams to create and test hypotheses related to the Arboretum’s forest, wetland, meadow, and stream habitats. The program will culminate in a science fair showcasing team projects. Students are asked to bring paper, a three-ringed folder or notebook, and a writing utensil to class. Comfortable walking shoes and clothes that may get a little dirty are a must! Advance registration is required. The program is designed for homeschoolers ages 7 to 14. Reading activities will be part of each class. Advanced registration required.
