During this FLEX (no live meetings) class students will learn about a science through a series of hands on experiments. The experiments will help the students better understand the science behind them since they will watch first hand the results. Be ready to get a little messy and have some fun. I highly recommend parent supervision for the class at all times. The class consists of four presentations, one each week, that I share through nearpod (no registration required). The presentations...
The goal is to have fun spending quality time with your family while we learn about science. Since your children will be having fun and enjoying what they are doing, they will be more likely to ask questions and listen to the answers. Also because they are very hands on experiments they will remember better and it will make more sense than just trying to understand sometimes complex phenomenons.
I am a Biologist! I love science but more than that I love sharing my passion with my children and see how their eyes open widely when they understand how our bodies and the environment around them work. I would love for you to have the same kind experience with your children.
Students should answer the questions throughout the nearpod presentation and submit photos (or videos) of their results with the class and the teacher. We will also engage during the week through the Outschool classroom in scientific discussions!
Once you sign up for the class I will send you the list of materials you will need for each experiment. Most of the stuff you will need will be things that you already have at home, such as: duct tape, vegetable oil, plastic bottles, cardboard, etc. Nothing too fancy I promise! I like to use a lot of the stuff at home that we will end up throwing to the trash anyway to have fun with my girls.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will post some questions about the experiments and expected results in the nearpod presentation but also we will engage in discussions through the Outschool classroom. The follow up with questions about the experiment will help them build a strong understanding of the experiments. The class will overall help the students to start establishing a scientific reasoning base.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
This class is really for any age as long as there is parental supervision. I have made this experiments with my 2 and 4 year old and they loved them! Of course, the level of understanding of the science behind it will depend on the age, but I still share with them the reasons behind everything we do, since they all love to ask 'why'!
