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
"This was so eye-opening! I learned so much and am very excited to bring what I learned into the classroom with my students!" - Lisa W., Kindergardent Teacher, 3 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
