The Hundred Acre School opens its doors to children ages 4 to 8 during school breaks. Join us in our bright, modern classrooms and arts laboratory for STEM-focused vacation week programs that allow children to question like scientists, use technology as a tool, be creative engineers, and think like mathematicians. Heritage Museums & Gardens becomes our second classroom with daily adventures throughout the grounds and to the museums.
February Vacation “STEM Explorers” – February 21-24
During this session, we will engage in daily STEM exploration adventures throughout Heritage Museums & Gardens. Our quest will be to investigate student questions related to winter like: What’s the temperature? What do animals do during winter? What is snow? How much snow is on the ground? Are the trees frozen? Daily adventures outside in all types of weather add to the excitement of our day. The result will be lots of hands-on FUN!
