Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

June 13, Bham: McWane Teen Science Night

Teen Science Night
Teen Science Nights are after-hour events at McWane Science Center in which middle and high school students explore different science-related topics.   Through this program, teens have explored the secrets of the human brain, been introduced to nanotechnology and worked as problem-solving engineers!  Each Teen Science Night features guest speakers, hands-on science activities, interaction with McWane’s exhibits, food and fun!  

Our next event will be “Teens and Tech”, which will take place on Saturday June 13th (5:00pm-9:00pm).  During the event the teens will learn how to program LEGO Ev3 robots and design code in Python and Scratch.  They will also be introduced to online resources that will help them to continue their coding experiences at home.

The event is free, but due to limited capacity, seats have to be reserved ahead of time. In order to reserve a seat, contact our Reservations Department at (205) 714-8414.

“Teens and Tech” is made possible by the generosity of  Best Buy.
