RAFT Workshop – Science for the Non-Scientist
December 14 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm$30.00
Are you intrigued by science but also intimidated by it? Have you been asked to teach science for the first time but do not have the background? Do you want to explore more science topics with your own children? Perhaps you need a brief science refresher course. This workshop is designed to help educators unfamiliar with science teaching to develop the confidence and skills required to teach basic but relevant science concepts and practices. Participants learn how to do simple science activities using common materials such as straws, bottles, magnets, UV light, dry ice, and much more! As a participant you will explore Newton’s Laws, tinker with air pressure, investigate the properties of magnets, conduct simple experiments on energy, and learn how to facilitate other cool activities that are sure to give kids that “wow” factor. This workshop is ideal for K-5 teachers, homeschooling parents, scout leaders, summer or after-school program staff, and anyone interested in making science more accessible to students.
