Dive into Hydrology at Homeschool Day May 11

Families that homeschool their children are invited to learn about the science of water and connect with like-minded parents and kids at Homeschool Day Thursday, May 11, at the Environmental Education Center (EEC) at Veteran’s Oasis Park, 4050 E. Chandler Heights Road.

Homeschool Day will be held from 9:30-11:30 a.m. and is part of the EEC’s Environmental Education Explorations program, which provides field trip experiences to students and other groups.

“Students will create and study their own watershed to demonstrate how rainfall is channeled and collected,” said Ariane Francis, a Recreation Coordinator at the EEC.
“Once the water is collected, students will assess potential pollution sources, test the water and discuss current water conservation habits.”

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 at ariane.francis@chandleraz.gov or by phone at 480-782-2886.
