The Curiosity Path
Welcome to The Curiosity Path - providing hands-on opportunities for people to stimulate imaginations, explore ideas, test theories, make connections, and create memories through the sciences, through the arts, and through nature.
Classes are available by arrangement to fit your schedule. We can meet at your site, at my site, somewhere outdoors, or through Zoom. I have worked with science fairs, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, Red Hats, day care classes, after school classes, in-school classes, and homeschool events.
Summer Camp 2023 Registration is now open
The Curiosity Path is again partnering with STEAM On to offer two weeks of summer camps in June in Marion.
June 19-23 includes Curiosity Makers, featuring two crafting ideas in the morning. Try one, both, or a combination. Learn new skills or expand current ones. Take home the projects as you wish. Open to makers entering Kindergarten (with an adult partner) through 10th graders.
Curiosity @Hand during June 26-30 features five science topics to explore: Weather, The Science of Food, Space, Forensics, and Learning in a 70s Childhood.
And every Thursday afternoon from 1-3 PM explore the habitats of Waldo's Rock Park in Marion with Wonder/Wander.
Visit the STEAM On Camps page to view summer class descriptions for these classes AND MORE and to register for just one morning or enjoy a full fortnight of learning through fun.
