Did you know you can purchase audio CD’s and MP3?s of workshops that you missed? They are available shortly after a workshop ends at the Rhino Technologies booth in the exhibit hall! They also sell recordings available for download after the Expo on their website at http://www.rhino-technologies.com
This is a VERY popular option for maximizing your Homeschool Expo experience!
We are deeply saddened by the loss of Debbie Strayer, a true blessing to this world and an inspiration for Homeschoolers all over. See more here.
Crystal Creek Media presents Film Camp for Teens! The camp is coming to the Southeast Homeschool Expo in 2013! Teens can learn practical and technical aspects of creating awesome movies. Parents can attend the Homeschool Expo while the Teens enjoy the action-packed two-day film camp. Teens will learn the skills and necessary knowledge to enter the film making industry. The camp has received rave reviews from homeschool leaders around the country! Daniel & Kathleen Knudsen head up a jam-packed schedule with great sessions such as “Taking Center Stage: Acting for Film”, “Design for Art and Screen: Cinematography & Editing”, “Winning with the Audience”, and much more! Go check out the Film Camp for Teens page to learn more!
Have you stayed away from the Homeschool Expo just because of the magnitude of it all? Looking at the listing of workshops or a peak into the exhibit hall can give you a deer in the headlights look! Where do you start?
- Plan ahead by reading about the available workshops and making a note of when it will be held. If there are two you want to attend at the same time, consider which would be best to attend and get the other on CD. If you go with a friend or a spouse, you can each attend one and share notes afterwards.
- Have a list of curriculum you want to look over. Plan on taking the time you need and ask the exhibitors your questions.
- Know your prices. If you buy at the conference it will save on shipping, but you will want to have some kind of luggage or cart on wheels to save your strength.
- Do you have a budget? If you do, don’t spend it all at once! The school year is long and you will probably need something else before the year is out.
Attending the Homeschool Expo is educational and exciting. The workshops and exhibitors are there for you. You might also want to consider Homeschooling for Excellence, a one day conference for beginning homeschoolers.
One question we get asked quite frequently is “Are children welcome at the Southeast Homeschool Expo?”
Our answer?? YES!
We work very hard making the Southeast Homeschool Expo a FAMILY event. Moms, dads, and children are all welcome to attend. Children under 18 can attend FREE with their parents on Friday and Saturday to the Expo Exhibit Hall. There are many activities available for the kids – a game area, a rock climbing wall, exhibitors that have many items available to purchase for your kids, and workshops where children are encouraged to come.
When you take your children with you to any of the workshops, please be mindful of the speakers and other parents. If your child becomes noisy, we ask that you quietly remove them from the workshop.
There are two exceptions to “children are FREE”. One is KidsZone which is only available on Thursday during the Homeschooling for Excellence 101 Conference. The other is the Worldview Teen Track. Both of those events will have a fee.
