Real World Learning!

Field trips can enhance learning, increase interest and help to solidify concepts. Besides all that, they're fun! Join HOME at various locations throughout the year for some real-world learning experiences! 


If you need some financial assistance in order to participate in a HOME field trip, please feel free to apply for a scholarship. HOME has a limited amount of funds available for this purpose thanks to some generous donations! Contribute to this fund to support homeschool families in need!

Force 5/Aurora Storm

Our weather/space double feature 'Force 5' focuses on extreme weather events: hurricanes, tornadoes, and space storms. 'Aurora Storm' is an 11-minute program about the science and mythology of the aurora borealis, or northern lights.
