We can now add Cover Model to the list of accomplishments that Steve Spangler has achieved. He is on the cover of Speaker Magazine this month as The New Mr. Wizard.
Steve has been a member of the National Speaker Association for years and has been a keynote speaker at its conferences.
The article chronicles Steve’s rise to success from performing at church and birthday party events on the weekends with his parents, to doing over 4,500 school assemblies, to toy designer and teacher trainer.
Magic and speaking have always been an important part of Steve’s life and career. Pick up a copy of Speaker Magazine and find out how he turned a few videos on a fledgling website called YouTube into a paid gig on their new network.
Another interesting fact about Steve – he knows how to surround himself with talent. Our own Shawn Campbell took the photo for the cover.
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.
Before we can get kids excited about science, we have to first start with getting teachers excited about teaching science. This year’s participants at Science in the Rockies shared some of the their underlying reasons for focusing their effort on being better science teachers.
In July, my team of naturalists and I will lead a group of about 120 science enthusiasts on an educational cruise to Alaska. Our Science at Sea 2009 cruise was sold out and this year we’ve added more space and taken our custom shore excursions to a whole new level.
I wanted to offer free registration for our second Science at Sea trip to a Facebook fan who could tell us why they wanted to join us on the coolest field trip ever this summer.
Contestants had to submit a video giving us a creative look at why they should win the free registration. After much deliberation, five pots of coffee, and two breaks to go out into the parking lot and blow something up, the judges have decided to announce three winners…
Tis the season for spooky, slimy science. The kids are excited for the upcoming holiday, restless in their seats and it’s hard to keep their attention on the lessons at hand. Early childhood teachers know that getting kids excited about science is only part of the challenge. Getting them engaged, focused and excited about what they are learning so they retain it is another big part of the puzzle.
Funnel the excitement for the holiday into an unforgettable classroom experience that will make it home to the dinner table. Why not combine a literary lesson along with a science lesson? For example, read Diary of a Worm by Doreen Cronin and then learn about polymers while you make Insta-Worms.
This is just one example of a great literary connection to make with your students. Do you want to learn more? Join Julie Gintzler for a one-day training that will help you build more literature connections, teach more science and have more fun while creating unforgettable learning experiences.
Story Time Slime is more than a collection of great hands-on activities. It’s a whole new way to teach science through children’s literature.
Julie Gintzler is an early childhood science specialist who combines her passion for teaching hands-on science with her love for great children’s literature to create incredible learning opportunities for children. I invited Julie to join his teacher training team after seeing her in action and experiencing her unique approach to getting her students to think like scientists.
