Raising Einsteins in Your Monet Garden
Do you question whether science is "your thing"? Are you wondering how to raise a child to observe, play and discover like Einstein when you have painted yourself to be a non-scientist? From the garden to the kitchen, from story time to playtime, Susan will help you unearth fun, simple, practical ways you can cultivate a budding scientist during their elementary season.The Unbreakable Bubble
Can you put your finger through a bubble... without causing it to burst? Learn to enter your child's natural inquisitive world, without bursting their bubble. Children are born observers, asking why and how... turning objects over and inside out... taking things apart. However, many teaching methodologies burst a child's passion for observation, a key element to scientific discovery. Susan will show you how to use open inquiry to launch scientific exploration and cultivate creativity. Are you ready to question like Einstein?It's All Greek To Me!
Are we sending our children into the scientific world unable to speak the language? Most elementary and middle school science curricula give kids a sampling of random topics. Kids learn a little about the solar system, how a plant grows and the human body, but they never learn the basic building blocks of science: chemistry and physics. Susan will show you just how easy it is to teach chemistry and physics to your elementary students and how this helps build the foundation they need for advanced science classes.Using the Internet as a Study Tool for Science
The internet can be a valuable resource for science education, and it can also be a huge waste of time. Susan will present tips on how to use the internet wisely for researching scientific topics and how to use the internet for science experiments.Finding the H 2 Your O
Whether your teens are positively or negatively charged about science, it's everywhere! It's essential! It's extraordinary! It's fun! Susan will help you chart some simple, practical ways to further integrate science into your teens' daily intake! The resulting bonds may surprise you!
