Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Bringing science-ing to all.
We believe that our children benefit most from collaborative learning and teaching. We are a growing community of scientists, entomologists, biologists, oceanographers, architects, engineers, zoologists, educators, parents, and more. We have an advisory board that keeps us up to date with the most recent information, tools, and research. We all have a passion for what it is that we do. It is at the core of our belief that sharing our knowledge will not only assist educators to meet new and evolving standards, but will also excite kids’ basic instinct to discover and learn. We have created a website that will be constantly evolving (as all good science does). Our website will provide free hands-on science kits and in-classroom tools that can be checked out, much like a library book. It will also have a directory of local professionals in each area of STEM to aid Pre-K to 5th grade classrooms. Teachers can find evolving curriculums / experiments/ handouts in printable, PDF format. On the website calendar, teachers can sign up for a local professional to visit their classrooms during one of our science-ing tours. Each tour is about 15-20 minutes. Several tours will have live animals with professional handlers and/or some cool hands-on "science-ing" tools for students to use. Also on the science-ing website, educators can sign up for professional development opportunities with STEM specific-certificates from LXS. School Directors and Principals can also inquire about whole-department classes.
