Free, Interactive, Online LIVE Programs for Student Groups
Special Live Events are free programs open to all schools, homeschool groups, afterschool programs, and other organizations that serve students in kindergarten to 8th grade. We suggest that you only sign up for programs that match the targeted age group of your students.
Because of the interactive nature of these programs, we recommend combining no more than 2 classes per program reservation.
