National recognition for Arizona Science Center just in! The National Association of Counties (NACO) has awarded one of our home school programs with the Best of Category award at the NACO Awards; the highest award of its category! We partnered with the Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department to form The Usery Mountain Regional Park Home School Program. This program meets the needs of homeschool communities, combining traditional classroom learning along with outdoor interpretive exploration. These youth specific programs are targeted at students between the ages of 6 to 10 years old and consist of topics widely ranging from desert plants to the water cycle. So far, more than 400 students have attended these programs, and we predict these numbers will increase due to the program’s success recently appreciated by the NACO!
