I learned "scientific concepts can be approached in a developmentally appropriate way for the age group I work with and Leonisa gave me clear examples on how to do so." - Jennifer M., Early Childhood Teacher, 10 years

"It was my favorite class at Bank Street by far. I have attended about 10 over the past 10 years. This was inspiring, exciting and I can't believe how much I have learned...I am rethinking my entire curriculum now" -
Alina D., Director of Programming, 12 years

This workshop was "very hands-on and engaging...Loved the "cross-cutting" of disciplines and the use of a framework that integrated concepts and practices across biology, chemistry, physics, etc. vs. seeing them as dicrete." - R. Weaver, After School Instructor, 5 years
