Want to bring hands-on science to your classroom, with free activity kits? Join us for two training events just for teachers, inspired by our Science To Go family events. Each virtual training will cover two different science activities, with two types of kits. During the virtual events, we'll teach you how to use the kits in your classroom. (Recordings will be available too, if you can't make the live events.)
To join, email SERCOutreach@si.edu. Teachers in the Maryland and D.C. areas who register can receive 32 kits for each activity or 64 for each virtual event (must be able to pick up kits). Don't live nearby? You can also build your own kits using common household materials.
