With Akron Fossil & Science Center’s Professional Upgrade well under way, 2016 is off to a running start! In addition to Birthday Parties and Super Science Saturday, AFSC will also be offering its popular 12 week session of Simply Science classes beginning January 19th. With our Spring Session beginning next week, we’d like to highlight this amazing resource and encourage you to sign up! If you haven’t registered yet, you’re in luck! To give more people the opportunity to take advantage of these classes, we have extended the registration date to Monday January 18th!!
So what exactly is Simply Science? Created to align with Ohio education standards, Simply Science is a 12 week session of science classes developed for home schooled students grades K-12th. With 6 classes from which to choose, Simply Science allows students to explore a variety of sciences through hands-on activities, interactive journals, and take home assignments designed to build greater connections with the material covered in class. Regular testing is administered along with a report card showcasing your child’s achievements. Here is a sampling of what you can look forward to for our Simply Science Spring Session:

Akron Fossils & Science Center strives to remain an affordable educational resource for families, so we are offering our Simply Science classes for the low price of $12/class or $120/session for grades K-6th, and $15/class or $150/session for grades 7th-12th. To ease the burden for families with multiple students, we also offer a 25% sibling discount after the first child for those who register for a full session. If you love Simply Science and refer a friend who decides to register, you can also receive $10 off your registration!
Registration may be done by phone, mail, in person, or through PayPal on our website (*Please do not use PayPal if the family discount applies to your situation: please email us for a PayPal invoice to include your discount). Full payment is required with registration. Parents are welcome to sit in on classes—free of charge!
