Class Experience

Learners will obtain a greater understanding of science literacy, history, and challenges and/or research of current professionals. Learners will be encouraged to use the science-based vocabulary introduced in class during class discussions and activities. 
Each week, a supply list will be posted in the Outschool classroom 6 days before the next lesson. Weekly supplies should not exceed $5 and will often include common household items (colored pencils, scissors, printer paper, etc.).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
If you are homeschooling your student, please contact me about any specific feedback you would like me to give, such as formal letter/percentage grades.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
