How Outschool Works

Don't see a time that works for you?
Each class will focus on a different area of study/topic (e.g.: engineering, astronomy, geology) that will be introduced at the beginning of class. Based on topic of the day, learners will explore 3-4 innovative women in science per class. Each scientist will be introduced with a brief summary of their life and accomplishments followed by an activity or science experiment based on the topic of the day. Toward the end of each class, we also discuss current news or recently published research...
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.). Please message me if you would like the weekly supply list in advance.
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.
