As the new school year begins, many families in the Panama City Beach area will have to navigate their way through a new way of learning. With families turning to homeschooling or distance-learning programs, many families will be looking for ways to enhance their child’s education. Luckily, WonderWorks has new programs coming this fall that will do just that. With both virtual and in-person options, there is something for every family to enjoy. 

“We always want to be a resource for our community, and I believe these new programs are a great way to serve the panhandle in a fun way during these unprecedented times,” says Michael Walsingham, general manager of WonderWorks Panama City Beach. “We understand this school year may look different than year’s past, but we still want to be a place where students and families can come explore and play and learn something new while doing it.”

Th new programs that will be offered at WonderWorks Panama City Beach this fall include:

Homeschool Days – WonderWorks is expanding their Homeschool Day offerings. Typically, this event runs September through October, but they’ve added November to give families the chance to come at a time that is convenient for them.
