PAWS University Home Edition Logo

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are proud to bring PAWS University: Home Edition to our community each week in June.  The FREE, curriculum-based weekly kits will include hands-on activities to be completed at home.  If you do not receive a kit, you can still find a variety of educational activities, live experiments/interviews, virtual tours, “celebrity” readers, workouts, and more right here on our website.

Due to the incredible response, all of our PAWS University: Home Edition kits have been reserved.
