Anaheim Science Boot Camp – Teachers Who Make a Difference
Today’s stop on the science boot camp tour took us to Anaheim, California where we met up with 85 teachers who come from very diverse teaching backgrounds but all share a common goal to make science more exciting and accessible for their students. I only wish that there was more time to really get a chance to talk with these teachers and to learn more about their struggles and success in integrating more science into their everyday curriculum. This workshop attracted early childhood teachers, elementary and even some middle school teachers. One of the common challenges I heard throughout the day was teachers needing more uninterrupted time to teach science and more time to let students truly wonder, discover and explore on their own.
