There's a Scientist in My Classroom!*
...because everyone wants a scientist or engineer in the classroom.
Inspire a new generation of science students by
introducing them to professional scientists and engineers!
Why should you care about scientists in classrooms?
Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) students often ask, "what does this stuff have to do with me?" There's a Scientist in My Classroom brings teachers and scientists together to answer the question. Many scientists and engineers wonder how to reach others with their work. Many teachers spend a long time struggling to ignite their students' interest in science. When scientists and engineers work together with teachers, it only takes one day to change the way kids think about science.
We help put scientists in classrooms to give students an inspiring look what real scientists and engineers are like. Our networking workshop supports K-12 teachers and STEM professionals* by giving them a unique opportunity to meet and collaborate to craft fun, memorable, engaging classroom visits. We help you do more than bring scientists into the classroom - we help you bring science and scientists to life.
