Learning Pods

Introducing - Boonshoft Learning Pods!

Looking for a safe and supportive learning environment for your child this fall? The Boonshoft Museum of Discovery is now offering small group Learning Pods for students grades Kindergarten to 12th.

With many school districts opting to go virtual at the start of the 2020-21 school year, we are offering a structured and safe environment for your child to accomplish their schoolwork and enjoy the resources available to them at the museum. Each pod will have a maximum of 9 students and will be filled on a weekly first come, first served basis. Proper cleaning and social distancing will be maintained with each pod and temperatures will be taken at drop-off each day. Under the professional supervision of museum staff, we will make sure your child stays engaged and on top of their individual course load. 

For students grades Kindergarten to 12th, see below for scheduled offerings.
Pods are filled week by week, on a first come, first served basis - but you can register for more than one week or the full 9 weeks at a time. 
Discounts and pricebreaks are listed below.
