HOMESCHOOL DAYS

Homeschool Days at Badlands will keep children loving learning!

 

Through hands-on problem solving, creativity, and play, children will explore each month’s theme. First up, Flight!

Each Homeschool Day has morning and afternoon programs. When you sign up for a Homeschool Day program, you can play at Badlands from 9:30am to 2:30pm that day, but you must sign up for each program individually.

OCTOBER 24TH PROGRAMS

10:00 – 11:30 AM

AIR ALL AROUND!

Ages: 4-6

Kids will explore this invisible thing called air! They will conduct experiments to prove that air is inside things that look empty, investigate how air can be used to push and pull, and make air spinners that fly in different ways.

FORCES OF FLIGHT

Ages: 7-9

Students will explore the forces of flight and investigate which forces affect both gliders and aircraft. Then students will experiment with both gliders and aircraft??

THE WRIGHT IDEA

Ages: 10-13

Students will learn about the Wright brothers and how they built their first airplane. Then they will use workshop materials to build a replica (display only) of the Wright Brother’s first plane.

12:30 – 2:00 PM

FANTASTIC FLYERS

Ages 4-6

Kids experiment with all different kinds of flying toys to learn which ones fly best. Kids will construct an indoor box kite and experiment with its parts so it can fly well. In the process, they will learn about the four forces of flight

ROCKET BALLOONS 

Ages 7-9

Kids will investigate Newton’s 3rd law and experiment to discover that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. They will experiment with air-powered pinwheels, mini air-powered rockets, and create rocket balloons that zoom across the room!

NEWTON’S LAWS OF MOTION

Ages 10-13

Students will explore each of Newton’s 3 laws with hands-on experiments designed to demonstrate how forces affect objects. This will involve math calculations!

Kids will learn about what forces make rockets fly and then will build their own bubble-powered rocket! Participants will test their rocket and make their own modifications to help it fly better.
