Science Workshop: Activities for the Non-Scientist
August 24 @ 10:00 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. Then come and learn how to do simple science activities using common materials such as straws, bottles, magnets, lasers, UV light, dry ice, and much more! You will bend laser beams, explore Newton’s Laws, tinker with air pressure, levitate magnets, conduct simple investigations and learn how to do a variety of cool activities that are sure to give kids that “wow” factor. Best of all, you will learn the science behind the activities presented. 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 young learners. This workshop earns participants 3 training hours that can be applied towards continuing education units (CEUs) issued through San Jose State University.
