  • Driver Education

    Community Education offers teen driver education in cooperation with Safeway Driving School. Safeway Driving School has been graduating teen drivers in the Twin Cities area for over 45 years. Safeway’s only focus is creating safe, responsible teen drivers. Classroom and behind-the-wheel lessons emphasize defensive driving techniques tailored for the inexperienced teen driver while targeting to influence the invincible teen attitude. All of Safeway’s instructors are licensed by the Minnesota Dept. of Public Safety. Classroom instruction prepares the student to take the Minnesota permit test and begin the responsibility of driving. The 30 hours of classroom is structured into 10 independent lessons. Students must be on time for all classes. If a student misses a lesson, they can make up that exact lesson number at the next session or at one of Safeway’s other locations. After class is completed, students that are 15 years old are eligible to take their permit test at any Minnesota exam center. Students can take the class at age 14½ but cannot take their permit test until age 15. No transportation is available for the classroom.  Behind-the-wheel instruction includes six hours of driving in three, two-hour private lessons. All driving is done in a real car on actual city streets, highways and freeways with a responsible, licensed Safeway instructor. Safeway recommends students take their first lesson 6-8 weeks after receiving their permit. The lessons should be a minimum of 30 days apart to allow for practice driving. The lessons can be completed up to one year after completing classroom. Scheduling is offered online for 24/7 convenience. All of Safeway’s cars are white with identical graphics, so parents and students are confident that it is a Safeway car picking up the student for a lesson. Students can get picked up for their behind-the-wheel lesson from home, school or work. Parent involvement is required to produce safe, responsible teen drivers. It is critical that parents plan to practice regularly with their new student drivers. State law requires 50 hours of practice documented on a log that is turned in at the road test. If a parent attends a Safeway Parent Class, the practice time is reduced to 40 hours. Safeway offers detailed information on its web site to assist parents with understanding Minnesota laws and requirements for student drivers. Safeway strongly encourages parents to review its parent information, attend a Parent Class or watch the online Parent Class videos at www.safewaydrivingschool.com.   Cost of the teen package is $399 and includes the classroom, behind-the-wheel lessons and all materials.

  • ScienceBee Wiz

    For young learners, science is just an extension of their everyday world. We don’t have to teach young children how to wonder, discover, and explore through play because they do it naturally.  Science offers the answers to various questions young children ask out of curiosity.  Because the subject is so vast, learning the basics right from early learning days will help fuel their natural curiosity and will enable children to decide whether they want to pursue a higher education in the subject.  The ScienceBee Wiz is perfect complement to Eden Prairie’s K-6 science program. This program supports the student’s normal classroom routine. If you want your child to excel in Science, or do well in the middle school Science Olympiad or similar programs, ScienceBee Wiz is an apt fit.  The program takes advantage of the natural curiosity of each child, and allow for in-depth learning of science concepts by engaging students through science demonstrations, real world discussions, and quizzes. Children will also learn to think logically and improve their problem-solving skills.    Students will have an opportunity to demonstrate their science knowledge at the MN ScienceBee Wiz competition, more information provided by instructor.  Does not include the competition fee.
