This summer, homeschooled kids in

attend the 2012 Southeast Homeschool Expo
(http://www.southeasthomeschoolexpo.com) with their
families, thanks to the Expo’s over-the-top kids’

The Southeast Homeschool Expo, slated for Thursday, July 26,
2012 through Saturday, July 28, 2012, at the Cobb Galleria
Centre, features a large rock climbing wall and a ropes
obstacle course, both inside the exhibit hall. Kids can try
their hand (and feet) at the rock wall, or try to make their
way through the Treetop Quest obstacle course. Also inside
the exhibit hall: a Chess tournament, an Atlanta Braves
batting cage and other fun kids’ activities. Also, the
popular KidsZone, a separate education event, is available
to kids ages 4 to 12. Although all students may attend the
Expo for FREE, registration for the optional KidsZone
Conference is $35 per child per day or $80 for all three

Although 2012 Southeast Homeschool Expo organizers have gone
to great lengths to make the event memorable for students,
the Expo promises to be just as compelling for parents.
Featured speakers include Dinah Zike, author of The Big Book
of Books and Activities, who teaches parents how to
strengthen students’ basic skills with study aids. Coach
Rick Andreassen, founder of the Christian Homeschool
Athletic Association of Florida, joins other dynamic
speakers to challenge teens at the optional Worldview Teen
Track to take a close look at their faith and how they live
it out in today’s world. Author Robert Andrews speaks about
biblical parenting, including discipline and courtship.

Kirk Martin, Celebrate Calm founder, behavioral therapist
and homeschooling father, helps parents end yelling and
power struggles. Veteran homeschool mom Tracee Wood shows
parents how to create organizational tools. Thomas Clark,
former State Mathematics Supervisor for the Indiana
Department of Education and founder of VideoText
Interactive, helps parents brainstorm strategies for helping
their kids become critical learners. And nationally known
author and speaker Rebecca Ingram Powell reveals how parents
can combat the dangers confronting middle and high schoolers

Along with kids’ activities, parent workshops and speakers,
the Southeast Homeschool Expo features a large exhibit hall
with thousands of school materials to review and purchase.
