KidsZone is an Expo favorite and very popular with parents and children alike! Children enjoy various activities and guest speakers while parents attend the Homeschool Expo or Homeschooling for Excellence 101. Guest speakers may include animal shows, science shows, robot building, LEGO building, and much more! While parents attend Homeschooling For Excellence 101, their children can attend a variety of workshops given by speakers who will challenge them to become active and excited learners. Our goal is to remind children that learning is rewarding and interesting and that learning can happen anywhere, at any time.

Presenter: Zoo Atlanta
Visit with some of the Zoo’s live Ambassador Animals and get a sneak peek into one of the many different activities your students could do at Zoo Atlanta’s Homeschool Academy!
Presenter: Jenny L. Cote
Jenny explains how creative writing is like painting a picture in your mind and writing what you see. Animating animal figurines, Jenny brings colorful characters to life, and describes the importance and, yes, FUN of doing research! Learn how to weave in surprises, action, tension, and end well.
“Pharaoh Cote” makes a grand costumed entrance and engages the students about dreams. She’ll be joined by costumed Joseph volunteers who act out the different stages in the life of Joseph for a vibrant discussion on the evolving arc of a character, complete with dynamite dialogue, reality checks for writing historical fiction, and how to use artistic license.
Presenter: Children’s Museum
Head In The Clouds
Head In The Clouds: “Head in the Clouds” lets kids explore the water cycle and discover the different types of clouds and what they mean for the weather. In addition to learning new vocabulary, students get to witness a real cloud form right before their eyes, and even get to carry out an experiment creating their own “cloud in a cup.”
Dance Around The World
Dance Around The World: Exploring different cultures through art, music and dance can be so much fun. Join us as we jump on an imaginary jet and fly to faraway places as we explore Dances from around the World! This awesome program includes a literary component, music, movement, and a hands-on activity!
Presenter: Math Imagined
Math that stretches and bends
Did you know that some mathematicians think coffee cups and donuts are the same thing? Students will participate in hands-on activities, and explore a branch of mathematics called topology.
The Patterns of Pascal
Math is known for being a left-brained, logical subject. Likewise, many people miss the opportunity to explore how creative you can be while investigating the connections between numbers. In this workshop, students will explore Pascal’s Triangle and discover how numbers, patterns, various concepts, and even art can all come together in one three sided shape.
Presenter: The Art Studio
Exploring Watercolor with The Art Studio
Join The Art Studio as we explore different ways to use watercolor to create a fun, creative creature and turn it into a mask! For this workshop, kids will be able to draw their own silly creature, paint it, and make it into a mask. We will be using watercolor paints, markers, sharpie, pencils, scissors, and glue dots on popsicle sticks to make our masks. We will work through examples of how to draw their creature, and then they will have time to create them.
