2011 Hands-on Science Boot Camp Tour Coming to 6 Cities this Fall

Join Steve Spangler for an intensive one-day, boot camp training that is guaranteed to change the way you teach science forever. This fast-moving seminar is for pre-k and elementary teachers who need creative science integration strategies… who are tired of trying to “squeeze” science into their already packed teaching schedule… and who want to make science even more fun and meaningful in their classroom. Stop squeezing and start integrating!

The Boot Camp tour will be in the following cities.

  • Houston, TX     Sept. 28th
  • Dallas, TX     Sept. 30th
  • Chicago, IL     Oct. 5th
  • Washington, D.C.    Oct. 7th
  • Orlando, FL    Nov. 9th
  • Tampa, FL     Nov. 11th

Steve will be sharing his favorite Halloween experiments at the Houston, Dallas, Chicago and Washington, D.C. workshops.

The one-day workshops are only $189 per person.

The bottom line is this – Steve Spangler will help you take the fear out of teaching science and become a more effective science teacher using simple and inexpensive materials.

Register online or call 1-800-223-9080 but do it fast. Space is limited and workshops are filling up.

Reach Them to Teach Them 2009 – Motivating Teachers to Achieve Peak Performance

ReachThem2TeachThem-Spangler10If you’ve ever taught a day in your life, you know that the job is both rewarding and exhausting. In an effort to keep our students inspired and motivated to want to learn, sometimes we forget to recharge our own teaching batteries. Amy Crawford is an amazing elementary teacher based out of Knoxville, Tennessee who understands the need for teachers to have a profound impact on the lives of their students… but she also understands the need for teachers themselves to stay motivated. In 2006, Amy and a her dream team created a non-profit organization called Reach Them to Teach Them. The mission is clear… To train, motivate and inspire leaders so that every child is equipped to reach his/her maximum potential. I was honored to be invited to serve as the keynote speaker at this year’s event at the historic Tennessee Theater with 1,700 teachers on hand.
