      Surf-Skate-Science Homeschool Classes / Grade 4th-9th / Spring Semester 2019

      PLEASE NOTE THAT SPRING CLASSES START FRIDAY, JANUARY 11th Surf-Skate-Science is a weekly homeschool class that is designed to enrich your child’s school curriculum, our co-op classes offer physical activity through surf and skate lessons. Plus, participants will also learn the science involved in Action Sports including marine biology, environmental science, physics and more. Our Spring Semester will focus on Environmental Science. WHY ACTION SPORTS & SCIENCE? It's a fact... kids just learn more when learning is hands- on and they are having fun. Our co-op classes offer active learning opportunities where kids can learn the science behind activities they love. This is what we call Action Science. Each week we will learn the Science of Surfing or Skateboarding. In our surf science classes, you will learn the enviromental science, basics woodworking and even art and design. We will enjoy some excellent guest speakers and field trip. On our skate science weeks, jump on a board and learn about the material used to make a skateboard. You will also learn the process of how a skateboard is created and even get a chance at making a skateboard deck of you own as we dive into the science and design of a skate deck. In surf science we will learn about the ocean, coastlines, and marine life and get a chance to see this first hand. Students become not just skaters in a park or surfers in the water but scientists talking about marine and environmental science and using the ocean and the skatepark as their labs.
