EarthWorks is an innovative, hands-on immersive simulation experience. Homeschooling student scientists ages 8-11 will work together at EarthWorks in Taylor, MI to restore the life-sustaining levels in four North American habitats! Students visiting EarthWorks investigate live plants and animals, use state-of-the-art technologies and restore the facility’s ecosystems to life-sustaining levels. They explore 25 different scientific careers in a full-day experience at the EarthWorks facility. Prior to the visit to EarthWorks students work at home to complete related science unit studies and hands-on projects to immerse themselves in “on-the-job- training.” We suggest the work can be completed reasonably over a ten week period, working 2-4 hours a week.
The EarthWorks program fee includes the home school curriculum PDF, job application process, ongoing program support, parent volunteer training, 5 hour simulation experience in the EarthWorks habitats. This is a drop off program because there is very limited space on site.
