Homeschool Day reaches for the stars Aug. 10

Celestial navigation and how it influenced today’s satellite navigation technology will be explored at Homeschool Day Thursday, Aug. 10, at the Environmental Education Center (EEC) at Veteran’s Oasis Park, 4050 E. Chandler Heights Road.

Homeschool Day will be held from 9:30-11:30 a.m. and is part of the EEC’s Environmental Education Explorations program, which provides field trip experiences for students and other groups.

“Students will learn about the earth’s formation and composition and how the solar system influences our daily lives,” said Ariane Francis, a Recreation Coordinator at the EEC.

The programs are designed for children and youth ages 5 to 17 and offer grade-specific activities that allow students to experience the adventure of learning through hands-on inquiry-based activities and investigations.

The cost is $6 for homeschooled children living in Chandler and $9 for non-residents. Accompanying parents, chaperones and spectators attend for free.

To request a reservation for your school, group or homeschooled child, contact Ariane Francis at or by phone at 480-782-2886.
