Mosaic 2008 – Teachers Share Their Favorite Hands-on Science Experiences
We just wrapped up our first ever MOSAIC science workshop for teachers… and we had a blast. Here’s the idea behind MOSAIC – amazing teachers from diverse backgrounds coming together to share best practices and to learn how to the tools in their classrooms to create unforgettable learning experiences. All of this year’s participants received a special invitation from our workshop team because they had previously attended our week-long Hands-on Science Institute from Regis University or, more recently, they attended a three-day workshop called Science in the Rockies. I as said, this was the first time we ever offered a small-scale, very one-on-one training of this caliber. Judging from response… I think we’ll do it again in 2010.
UPDATE – MOSAIC 2010 is scheduled for June 23-25, 2010. If you previous attended Science in the Rockies, you’re eligible to register for MOSAIC. Learn more about the hands-on science training for teachers at MOSAIC 2010
Here are just a few memories from the MOSAIC 2008 workshop experience…
I loved every minute. I so enjoyed the Tesla coil. It was amazing for me to see how linking our hands while holding the coil could produce a light. I loved learning in a small group and got so much out of all of the experiences. Thank you for offering such an intimate and life changing experience. It was definitely the best workshop I have ever attended. I look forward to attending Mosaic 2 soon.
