Teachers take advantage of training
Thanks to the joint effort of Lane ESD and CLAST(an emerging collaboration between Lane County and University of Oregon scientists and educators), several science kit workshops have been offered over the last couple of years. Plenty of Bethel teachers have taken advantage of the offerings, educating them in how to integrate the kit in to other disciplines as well as to incorporate inquiry-based learning. Participants in this particular workshop explored a variety of hands-on activities from the Electric Circuits Science Kit and opportunities for integrating math and literacy were discussed. Other kit trainings that have occurred are: Solids and Liquids, Weather, Organisms, Changes, Motion and Design, Magnets and Motors, Land and Water, Ecosystems, and Measuring Time. Please email Cathy Bechen if you are interested in further science kit training.
