When was the last time your child was taken to a science lab?
Does your school include experiments and demonstrations in their science curriculum at the primary level?
Does your kid enjoy listening to lectures from their science teachers, take notes and study for examinations?
Can science be fun? YES!
This fun science workshop will let your children have a GREAT science experience. Why is this extremely important for children up to Class III?
Research shows that most children would have formed an opinion (positive or negative) about science by the time they reach the age of 7.
We want to create a positive opinion about science in young children, inspire them to enjoy science, and rekindle their curiosity. Our workshop is specifically designed to achieve this, by introducing science in a fun and interactive manner. We will conduct several experiments and demonstrations encourage your kids to participate and ask questions. This is your chance to be a great parent and provide your child with the opportunities our schools are failing to do.
Eligibility: Class I to III There will be experiments related to basic science topics such as Simple Machines, Force and Motion, Energy and Sound.
Steve Spangler, the TV personality and the CEO of Steve Spangler Science, participated in #TeacherFriends Twitter chat and met some amazing science teachers. Here is a shortened version of the Q&A session. You can read the full article at:
1. Why is early childhood science education important?
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.
The myth is that we have to convince children that science is fun. Are you kidding? Science has always been fun for children if it's presented in the right way.
Research shows that most children have formed an opinion (either positive or negative) about science by the time they reach the age of 7.
When people say they don't like science, it's most likely because of a bad experience they had as a child. It was the EXPERIENCE that shaped their negative opinion. That's why its so important to focus on working with early childhood educators to learn how to create amazing experiences that encourage discovery through play, asking questions, exploration and using creativity to solve simple problems. Its next to impossible to erase bad experiences. On the flip side, amazing experiences turn into unforgettable learning experiences that can inspire and motivate children to want to learn and explore more on their own.
If we're going to have a profound impact on the way our children view science, we need to earn their respect. And it all starts with creating unforgettable learning experiences that never lose the element of fun.
2. Whenever you're speaking at a conference, you tell the audience, If it gets to the dinner table, you win. In terms of teaching science, what do you mean?
Its a phrase that my principal helped me to understand when I taught science at the elementary level. If what you have to teach is so cool, so compelling, so exciting that your students talk about it with their parents and siblings at the dinner table later that night, you win as a teacher. In an age when children are being bombarded with activities and things to do, creating experiences sets you apart from everything else.
There are good teachers and then there are truly great teachers. Understanding the differences in teaching styles is the key to learning how to turn ordinary moments into unforgettable learning experiences the kind that kids talk about at the dinner table and remember for a lifetime. The secret to becoming the best teacher possible is to learn how to engage students on a whole new level using creative methods that promote wonder and exploration.
Good teachers teach us how to do something, but great teachers teach us why.
Good teachers share the facts while great teachers weave facts into real-world applications.
Good teachers may do activities, but great teachers create unforgettable learning experiences.
You might be sitting here today because of the efforts of a great teacher. When I think back on my truly great teachers, I don't anymore remember much of what they taught me, but I sure remember being excited to learn it. These were the teachers who listened to our ideas, respected our thoughts, open our minds and taught us to think differently. It really didn't matter what they were trying to teach I was just infected by their love of learning.
The sad part is that some people might go through all of their schoolings with just good teachers. Don't get me wrong good is not bad it's just not great. Good teachers do things great teachers inspire students to change and grow.
