The Museum of Arts and Sciences' approach to a lesson is to encourage interaction and team work among the participants. Students enjoy the intermingling of humor and content as they make their way through a lesson. Lessons are typically very active, and the venue may change a few times during the same lesson to utilize the many facilities that the Museum has to offer. Students are often given take home resources and suggestions for further information on the topic. These are great as the Homeschooler's portfolio builds all year long. (Daytona Beach)
