  • To filter the list of classes, select Topics and Grade Level in combination.
  • Some classes are a series, and some are one-and-done. When there is a series it is best to "take" these classes in order.
  • Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel. You can choose to be alerted when new classes are posted so you don't miss out! 

We hope you will share your projects with us so we can keep our connections strong! Share the classes with your friends, too!
