Each child will make their own personal dog tag, and then head outside to do some shelter building. After making a perfect shelter to hide from the enemy we will then head back inside to participate in more boot camp activities. We can tailor Boot Camp to fit all sort of young recruits’ abilities.Creepy Crawling Critters – Insects are everywhere! Come learn about nature’s tiny marvels. We’ll go on a bug hunt to see what we can find! Double Dare Challenge -Come celebrate your birthday Double Dare style.

The winning team gets to compete in an ultimate outdoor obstacle course! The Great Egg Drop (Spring to Fall) — Given a container and a raw egg, children must gather materials from one of the nature trails. They will use what they gathered as packing material to surround the egg in the container. Then they will drop their containers off the back porch. Will the egg survive? I Spy In a Jar - Using materials found and collected in nature, children will be guided and inspired to design and create their very own miniature forest creation.

It can be a hanging plant holder, a bug lab, or even a mini greenhouse. Children will choose which one to make. (Note: Each child must provide a clean, two-liter soda bottle.) Life Under Logs (Late spring to early fall) – Party in the woods with the unseen creatures.

We are excited to be kicking off the 2019-2020 school year with an entirely new Homeschool curriculum. New this year PMEC will be offering science classes twice a month, on the first and third Tuesday of each month beginning Tuesday, September 17. We have also added a social element to our sessions. Meeting more frequently will be beneficial for students to maintain the information, while also expanding the overall development of each student. For our 5-7year olds we have extended the time from 1 hour to 2 hours. The structure for each session:1 Hour Education1 Hour Play/Social InteractionThe classes will most often be divided by age during the first hour. 5 to 7 year olds8 to 10 year olds11 to 15 year oldsAges may combine for the second hour for gaga ball; Broom Hockey, Charades, Pictionary, and various group building games. Please find below an outline of what we planned for each month. The theme for the month will be spread out between the two classes. Science lessons relating to the theme will be covered. For example, Halloween Science will cover the three states of matter with Ghost Hands and dry ice experiments.Hope you can join us! Minimum number of participants is 6 per classBlast into Fall (September): Let’s learn how rockets are propelled. We will watch live footage; make stomp and Alka Seltzer rockets; play with menthos and coke. Let’s start the school year with a blast! Halloween Science (October): Halloween isn’t scary — it’s awesomely cool science time! We have two weeks of creepy experiments examining ghost poop, dry ice, fake blood, and more. Thanksgiving Science (November): Let’s talk turkey! Why does turkey make us tired? How do our senses impact what we taste and want to eat? Two weeks of exploring food science.Holiday Season Science (December) Come grow the Grinch’s heart! Examine how laser lights work. On a more cultural note, what do people around the globe celebrate in December i.e. games, food, traditions of the winter solstice, Haunaka, Christmas, Kuanza, etc. The Science of Snow (January) How does nature make snow? Let’s make our own! We will capture snow flakes (if the weather cooperates!), make snow cones, talk about the different types of snow and who lives there. We will go snowshoeing or a hike to see if we can find any traces of life in the woods. How Sweet it is! (February) Candy is front and center in the science lab this month as we look at the science behind candy and what can candy teach us about science. We will make your own rock candy, blow up a marshmallow, and learn about erosion through Skittles! Since this is “attraction” month, we will look at magnetism the second half. April Fool’s! (March) We will teach you some cool science “tricks” you can play on your family on April Fool’s Day! (Can’t describe them or else we will give away the surprise!) All about the Egg (April)Spring and Easter always bring to mind images of eggs — colored ones, fancy ones, newly laid ones! We will talk about the science of eggs and maybe walk on a dozen or two. We will talk about the science of dying them and eat one or two of you like. And let’s not forget the bunny! Why are bunnies so important for the environment? We will learn why!Springing into MayThe last class will be an End-of-the-Year party to celebrate a school of Holiday Science at PMEC! We will be outside looking at what is happening in the woods and pond at PMEC. WHO: Students ages 5-15 years oldWHAT: 6 two hours classes that make up each Bundle!WHERE: PMEC 66 Brook Rd, Amherst, NH 03031WHEN: First & Third Tuesday of every month 1-3pm

New this year PMEC will be offering science classes twice a month, on the first and third Tuesday of each month beginning Tuesday, September 17. We have also added a social element to our sessions. Meeting more frequently will be beneficial for students to maintain the information, while also expanding the overall development of each student. For our 5-7year olds we have extended the time from 1 hour to 2 hours. The structure for each session:1 Hour Education1 Hour Play/Social InteractionThe classes will most often be divided by age during the first hour. 5 to 7 year olds8 to 10 year olds11 to 15 year oldsAges may combine for the second hour for gaga ball; Broom Hockey, Charades, Pictionary, and various group building games. Please find below an outline of what we planned for each month. The theme for the month will be spread out between the two classes. Science lessons relating to the theme will be covered. For example, Halloween Science will cover the three states of matter with Ghost Hands and dry ice experiments.Hope you can join us! Minimum number of participants is 6 per classBlast into Fall (September): Let’s learn how rockets are propelled. We will watch live footage; make stomp and Alka Seltzer rockets; play with menthos and coke. Let’s start the school year with a blast! Halloween Science (October): Halloween isn’t scary — it’s awesomely cool science time! We have two weeks of creepy experiments examining ghost poop, dry ice, fake blood, and more. Thanksgiving Science (November): Let’s talk turkey! Why does turkey make us tired? How do our senses impact what we taste and want to eat? Two weeks of exploring food science.Holiday Season Science (December) Come grow the Grinch’s heart! Examine how laser lights work. On a more cultural note, what do people around the globe celebrate in December i.e. games, food, traditions of the winter solstice, Haunaka, Christmas, Kuanza, etc. The Science of Snow (January) How does nature make snow? Let’s make our own! We will capture snow flakes (if the weather cooperates!), make snow cones, talk about the different types of snow and who lives there. We will go snowshoeing or a hike to see if we can find any traces of life in the woods. How Sweet it is! (February) Candy is front and center in the science lab this month as we look at the science behind candy and what can candy teach us about science. We will make your own rock candy, blow up a marshmallow, and learn about erosion through Skittles! Since this is “attraction” month, we will look at magnetism the second half. April Fool’s! (March) We will teach you some cool science “tricks” you can play on your family on April Fool’s Day! (Can’t describe them or else we will give away the surprise!) All about the Egg (April)Spring and Easter always bring to mind images of eggs — colored ones, fancy ones, newly laid ones! We will talk about the science of eggs and maybe walk on a dozen or two. We will talk about the science of dying them and eat one or two of you like. And let’s not forget the bunny! Why are bunnies so important for the environment? We will learn why!Springing into MayThe last class will be an End-of-the-Year party to celebrate a school of Holiday Science at PMEC!
