Just in time for Thanksgiving, the fall break classes at Galileo Anywhere offer age-appropriate ways to keep kids learning, making, and laughing while school’s out.

Three thoughtfully-designed seasonal exclusives are available for each age group. Sign up for just one, or go for the full set. These fall break favorites are scheduled specifically so that innovators joining for multiple classes can count on the same time slot each day. Don’t wait too long to snag your spot—these classes won’t return until next autumn.

Here’s a peek at some of the adventures in store this Thanksgiving break.

Pre-K & Kindergarten

Scarecrow Adventure

Harvest a heap of autumn excitement with a scarecrow of your own design.

What kids will do

Pitch in to protect a field full of seeds from hungry birds.

Color in your own creative scarecrow, then test its seed-saving power against a flock of imaginary crows.

What parents are saying
