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.

McWane Science Center Teen Field Trip 

Where: McWane Science Center
              200 19th St. N
              Birmingham, Al 35203

When:Thursday, March 7th, 2019 @ 1:30

Details:  Join us at the McWane Science Center with your teens (younger siblings welcome).  We will meet up at the entrance and then head to one of the classrooms where the teens will get to participate in "The Rube Challenge".  Students will use the properties of physics to design a complex way to solve a simple problem. Explore the engineering process from start to finish in this fun-filled, hands-on program. 

After the class, you are free to explore the museum.  I am planning to take my teens to the new Genome and Speed exhibit.  You can see the details here... exhibit https://www.mcwane.org/event/genome-unlocking-lifes-code/  We would love for you to join us and maybe get a snack in the Smart Cafe afterwards if we have time. 

**Younger siblings are welcome with paid admission, but will not be able to go into the class with the teens.  You can explore the museum while the teens are in class with your younger children as long as you provide me with a number you can be reached at.  You must stay at the museum the whole time***

Cost: $9.70 per student (this includes the class fee of $2 and admission to the museum), $7.00 per additional sibling over the age of 2 (under 2 is free).  We get one free teacher per family.  Any other chaperone is $5.50.  

Deadline: February 28th. Your payment reserves your spot.  Please email me with the number of teens, siblings, and adults that will be joining you.  I will send you an email as soon as I receive payment confirming your spot.  You can paypal me at jenbohan77@gmail.com . ***Please be sure to select sending payment to friends and family so that I won't be charged a fee***
