Class Experience

Universe Sandbox
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
From Universe Sandbox: " Accordingly, we will not knowingly collect or use any personal information from children that we know to be under the age of 13. In addition, we will delete any information in our possession that we discover originates from a child under the age of 13.
Parental Controls. If you believe that your child’s personal information was mistakenly collected through our services, please contact us immediately at and we will work with you to determine if this is the case and remove such information if necessary."
Please see for further questions.
Students will need to purchase Universe Sandbox. It can be bought here: -or-
