Editor's Note from Susan Richman: Always great to hear about new offerings from the many wonderful Pennsylvania museums to help homeschoolers develop exciting learning programs! Hope many of you living in Western PA enjoy taking part in these great *field trip* outings in the Heinz History Center's new homeschool course!

Hello to all!

We are excited to announce our upcoming local history Homeschool Course, Adventures in Time and Place, at Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Historic Village, Fort Pitt Museum, and the Heinz History Center this fall. This is a new initiative for us, based on feedback from homeschooling families indicating a preference for course-style programs.

Students from 4th to 6th grades will have the opportunity to visit all three of our sites to learn about the history of Western Pennsylvania from prehistory to the 20th century. Course sessions will include a range of hands-on and interactive experiences, investigations of objects, and archival material.

For students wishing to visit just one site, a $20 fee per participant will cover both days. For students wishing to participate in the whole course (all 3 sites), we offer a reduced rate of $50.

Registration links and further information about the activities can be found at http://www.heinzhistorycenter.org/education/school-programs-k-12/homeschool-programs.

We look forward to seeing lots of new faces as well as those homeschool families who have attended in the past, so please feel free to share this course information throughout your networks. If there are any questions about the course, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Thank you for all your support so far, and best wishes,
