Informal Science Presentation [clear filter]
Saturday, February 1

1:30pm CST

Pint Sized Science
Pint-Sized Science emphasizes the importance of hands on science for young children. We will explore how to use simple materials to do science in the classroom. Join us to explore spinning eggs, echolocation, how many holes, solar system roll out and more. The foundations of an interest and love of science are best built when children are young, using their natural inclinations to explore and experiment in their environments. Teachers can learn some new activities, refresh ideas, and share their experiences with others taking science in their classrooms to another level.

I love teaching young children. They are so pure at heart and love to learn.
