North Greenville University Hosts Upstate Homeschool Science Fair
Posted on: March 31, 2023
Tigerville, SC (March 31, 2023) North Greenville University (NGU) hosted the Upstate Homeschool Science Fair earlier this month, providing students of all ages with an opportunity to present projects and demonstrations at various skill levels.
“We are a collaborative group that works collectively to plan events, field trips, clubs, and so much more to benefit our children and their schooling journey,” said Jessica Silva with the Homeschool Community of the Upstate. “With Co-ops, Homeschool Associations, Classes, Tutoring Programs, and so much more represented at this event, it is an opportunity for learning, growth, and coming together to meet like-minded people and maybe some new friends.”
Students were encouraged to “show and share” what they were learning at the event, which was designed to fill a need within the community.
“Many parents love the camaraderie of larger events but sacrifice the possibility of that when they choose to homeschool,” Silva said. “One of our many goals is to remove that barrier and feeling of sacrifice by incorporating large events.”
The Homeschool Community of the Upstate will host an Expo at NGU’s Tigerville campus on June 1 from 4-8 p.m.
“It is an event offered to fully immerse parents in the offerings of the Upstate to our Homeschooling Families at large,” Silva said. “It can often be overwhelming to jump into Homeschooling headfirst, as many parents do. This is a chance to show parents they aren’t doing this alone.”
Silva said the Homeschool Community of the Upstate would be looking to incorporate more large-scale events in the future.
“We have a new club program being offered on Thursdays, and we look forward to that continuing next fall,” she said. “We are so grateful to the volunteers, board members, and parents who put so much energy and effort into these events and ensuring cohesion for our children.”
