We are looking for volunteers to help us with both Math and Science lessons!  No Experience Necessary!

The Math & Science Idea Center will be conducting training for our 1st and 2nd grade BEST (Bedford Elementary Science Technicians) lessons, as well as Australian Math Tasks training for grades K - 4.  

For our BEST lessons we will be bringing teams of parents into each and every first and second grade classroom to help conduct hands on science and/or engineering lessons.  These lessons are led by John Boucher, our curriculum coordinator.  There are three second grade lessons and one first grade lesson.  Each lesson lasts approximately 45 minutes.  You can volunteer for as little or as much as you like, one class or all of them!  Lessons begin in January. 

Australian Math Tasks are hands on math "games" centered on problem solving.  As a volunteer you will coordinate with the teacher/teachers of your choice to go in and work with small groups of students as they work through these fun and engaging math tasks.  Scheduling is set up by you with the individual teachers and can begin as soon as you are trained.

Training for all of the above combined will take approximately 2-3 hours and will be held in November in the Math & Science Idea Center.  For those of you who have already been trained, there is no need to go through the training again. Of course if you'd like a refresher, that is fine.  There are three scheduled trainings, but if you cannot make any of those please let us know and we will work something out.  We'd love to have you!

See the sign-up to choose your training spot.
