But ignorance and failure
to act on science is.

Assisting teachers and schools in delivering engaging science content
Presentations at:   • Conferences    • District-wide PD events
  • Professional Learning Communities (PLC)'s   • PD events for public and private schools.
 • Universities & community college programs-- for future & current credentialed teachers
 • As part of science museum and aquarium field trips
 • In school classrooms & labs, and/or outdoors on school grounds --
presenting alongside/with teachers & teacher aides (sharing on-the-job experience).

Also offering incredible, almost unique skill-building environments:
Teachers and student teachers join us, in our very popular booths,
at public events and conferences to practice the art and science of
presenting hands-on labs and demonstrations.

Educators typically lead hands-on learning environments for dozens,
even hundreds of kids -- who are also students in the desired target
grade levels. All in few hours. Among the perks: lots of smiling thank yous.
This happens working alongside climate science & hands-on specialists.
Very supportive, forgiving, sharing. An unbeatable experience.
Designed for the kind of teachers that students and parents love
Continuing education units, stipends available.
Outstanding, true hands-on learning -- for students and teachers!
