Covid-19 UPDATE

Due to requests for social distancing over the next two weeks, we have had to make the difficult decision to reschedule our Homeschool Classes and Workshops. Classes and workshops scheduled from March 16th-27th will now take place May 4th-15th, with a few exceptions for our mini-courses. Schedules have been updated on our website and registered participants will be notified by email.


We apologize if this does not work with your schedule, and are happy to credit or refund those classes if your child(ren) cannot attend. Thank you for your patience and flexibility with this constantly changing situation. 


Please let us know if you have any questions: info@discoversciencecenter or  770 641-9336.

We help Homeschool Families with their Science Education Needs!

Our homeschool courses and workshops are designed by scientists and educators to supplement homeschool science curricula through fun, hands-on science experiments and activities. A minimum of 6 participants is required for each course.


PLEASE NOTE: We have two classrooms, our main Science Center (suite 5), and our STEM Lab (suite 21, just up the sidewalk). Please make note of where your child's class will meet.
